Four in five (78 percent) urbanites in large cities, some 1.21 billion people, primarily depend on surface water sources. The remainder depend on groundwater (20 percent) or, rarely, desalination (2 percent). The urban water infrastructure of large cities cumulatively supplies 668 billion liters daily. Of this, 504 billion liters daily comes from surface sources, and that water is conveyed over a total distance of 27,000 km.
the AquaSentinel, developed by SecureWaters detects toxins and pollutants in your local lake’s swimming area, at the beach, your favorite fishing stream, or any place where water is exposed to sunlight and air – in any body of surface water.In short, the AquaSentinel is water security and the AquaSentinel will revolutionize the way we all perceive water quality – whether for recreational purposes (swimming and bathing) – or in the monitoring of our drinking water supplies – the AquaSentinel provides a cost-effective alternative to expensive and time-consuming sample-and-test methodologies. Because of our unique, proprietary technological innovations, we have been able to drive the manufacturing cost of the AquaSentinel to a point where it is “cost-effective” to deploy in what are called “sensor networks.”
