Mobile water quality monitoring  

AKVO worked with IIT Kanpur, IIT Delhi and VITO to deliver a water quality monitoring approach using hand held devices and Akvo Flow and Akvo Caddisfly tools.


In Kanpur the current focus of the service is the monitoring and assessment of the water quality of the treated wastewater that is delivered to downstream villages for irrigation.

In New Delhi the focus will be monitoring the water quality in the open drains at selected locations and monitoring the performance of pilot technologies running at the Barapullah innovation site.

The mobile water quality monitoring service will be used to deliver information that is of relevance to the benchmark assessment of the two case areas. In addition, training will be given to interested stakeholders so that a participatory monitoring approach can be established.
