Attention all water providers: the EPA’s latest UCMR 4 list includes 30 new chemical contaminants that water systems have to test for and report. Can your environmental software handle it?
Water Quality Data
Valley Water has selected Locus’ environmental software, EIM, following consultant work Locus provided for the utility going back 14 years. They will seek to utilize Locus EIM as a laboratory database management system, and for data analytics. Locus EIM will be used to manage sample data for over 200 million gallons of drinking water consumed daily by over 2 million people in the district.
At the annual WM Symposia, representatives from many different DOE sites and contractors gather once a year and discuss cross-cutting technologies and approaches for managing the legacy waste from the DOE complex. This year, Locus’ customer Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) was the featured laboratory.
In this guest blog post, Dr. Todd Pierce of Locus Technologies examines the local water quality report, and asks— how transparent and readable are these reports for the average water user, and how can water utilities leverage their data for better communication with consumers?
