Sydvatten at Lake Bolmen, has joined with VA SYD Källby Water Workshop and NSVA RecoLab, on a collaborative Vinnova funded test bed to develop online drinking water quality monitoring. The Testbed project was presented during the National Drinking Water conference, 26 of October, in Malmö.
Sydvatten research station, situated at Lake Bolmen, in association with VA SYD Källby Water Workshop, in Lund, and NSVA RecoLab in Helsingborg, have initiated a Vinnova funded test bed. The collaboration aids in developing methods which will enable online quality monitoring and hence, contribute to safer drinking water management. This will provide operating personnel more time to react in the event of incidents, such as leakage or contamination, thus reducing the risk to the public.
Although the organizations involved are all linked within the water industry, they individually represent different phases of drinking water management through the consumption of this most precious resource. The Research Station Bolmen mainly focuses on the raw product, which in this case is the surface water of Lake Bolmen, one of the major drinking water sources for South Sweden. Källby Water Workshop focuses on both the quality and delivery of drinking water. RecoLab, an urban wastewater testbed with access to sorted wastewater streams, allows for testing on different types of wastewaters, as well as testing water at different steps during the treatment process.
The Testbed project was presented during the National Drinking Water conference, 26 of October, in Malmö. Guests were invited to make a digital visit to the test beds here. The presentation was hosted by Markus Fröjd, a research leader at Sweden Water Research and Esmeralda Frihammar, development engineer at VA SYD.
Together, these collaborating test beds, offer prospective developers a collective experience and expertise through the entire water cycle – all the way from raw water, through drinking water, to the recycled wastewater
