Aqualligence provides a water contamination alert service for drinking water systems. Contamination events in drinking water systems are rare events, but when they occur, they can have a large financial and social cost. Currently, operators in drinking water systems detect contamination events mainly through consumer complaints periodic manual sampling. As a result, drinking water contamination events may be detected days after the event has occurred.
Aqualligence is developing a solution for faster contamination event detection, within hours, by installing a large number of custom low-cost water quality sensors within the drinking water system. The water quality sensor data are then gathered and analyzed in real-time to determine whether a contamination event has occurred.
