Water Quality Monitoring Networks

Limit pollution risks and monitor contamination.

Improved water management and sustainability

As a finite resource, water needs to be protected from pollution to be utilised most efficiently and effectively. ADASA’s Water Quality Monitor Networks provide all the necessary tools to minimise risks from pollutant discharges that affect water use and human health.

Our tools improve early responses and decision-making during pollution events, bettering the reaction of local communities and businesses, and avoiding irreparable damage to water resources. Automatic stations and multi-sensor equipment provide reliable environmental information. We equip the water quality monitoring sites with advanced instruments to allow continuous data collection, fomenting safer and more efficient working practice.

Water quality measuring station

Our systems and equipment work in conjunction to collect online data about the constant state and evolution of water quality, detecting polluting discharges rapidly. Management and modelling tools provide information to help to mitigate and manage the effects of potentially polluting releases and alterations to overall water quality. They can also assess which established environmental objectives are being met.

Water quality monitoring networks are deployed with a flexible configuration, enabling the installation of stations in permanent or temporary locations. They have a high degree of automation, allowing them to be autonomous when managing station operating incidents. Advanced systems capture information in real-time to present - and store - the most relevant quality parameters. These displays and resources guarantee safe water and efficient operations across various sectors.

Many water authorities already use our systems to receive detailed information and alerts on the impact and extent of polluting or abnormal events in watercourses.


  • Automatic monitoring and immediate detection of contamination reduces surface water pollution through effective, real-time decision-making.
  • Dissuasive effect added via identification of those responsible for pollution events.
  • Discharge permission holders can reduce pollution episodes via continuous analysis of their emissions.
  • Up-to-date information on the state of water bodies allows water treatment plants and industries to detect water quality deviations and optimise their performance.
  • Reduction in the response time to operational incidents increases the efficiency of installations.
  • Knowledge of real-time pollution allows for readjustment of effluent charges for effluents, or dumping taxes, for water treatment plants or industries.
  • Establishment of penalties for treatment plants or sectors that do not comply with permitted contamination limits.
