Hydroscopio S.A. designs, constructs and manages the operation of stations’ networks for measuring various physicochemical water characteristics in Rivers, Lakes and Lagoons, Sea waters, Potable and Underground waters, Aquacultures, Waste water treatment installations, Industrial effluents and other applications.

OFFERED SERVICE PACKAGE

  • Design of stations network for on line water quality monitoring
  • Construction of stations network for on-line water quality monitoring
  • User training
  • Detailed study on the environmental and geophysical conditions of the aquatic ecosystem.
  • Selection of the exact positions of the stations, and the parameters to be monitored in each station.
  • Design of management systems for emergency situations (pollution, flood etc).
  • Economic and technical study on the proposed network, selection of the appropriate measuring equipment and the corresponding telemetric system.
  • Construction, installation and turnkey delivery of a stations network for on-line water quality monitoring.

SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT

  • Parallel measurements in a certified laboratory in order to verify the validity of the water quality measurements (Validation Control).
  • Monthly evaluation reports on the condition of the monitored aquatic ecosystem.
  • Estimations on probable pollution sources.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STATIONS

  • Ideal for installation inside protected areas.
  • Autonomous (no need for any kind of human intervention) operation for at least 15 days periods.
  • Unlimited expandability with respect to the number of measuring stations as well as base stations.
  • Automatic sample collection and storage in predefined time intervals or in case of an emergency situation (for additional analysis in a laboratory).
  • Possibility for real time data monitoring through Internet.
  • Theft, vandalism and shooting protection suitable for insurance coverage against the above dangers.
