Drinking Water Treatment Plants


  • Deployed and maintained water quality sensors on buoys and within water intakes to monitor source water quality.
  • Created custom dashboards that provide real-time data, information, and warnings to treatment plant operators to inform decisions.

The water treatment industry recognizes the negative impacts  of rapid changes in source water quality. Whether it be harmful algal blooms, low dissolved oxygen, or another environmental change, knowing the source water’s characteristics before the water enters the plant is needed to help inform the treatment process.

To meet this need, water treatment plants are investing in environmental sensors to provide an early indication of source water quality. Freeboard Technology has worked with numerous water treatment plants to develop, deploy, and maintain a sensor network that supports operators.
