Monitor Water Quality After Disasters
On-site testing without labs, electricity and infrastructure
Water Quality Testing for Disaster and Emergency Response
Natural disasters such as floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes contaminate water supplies and wells. In the wake of a disaster, sewage, septage and animal waste are sources of E. coli bacteria that find their way into drinking water sources and supplies.
Populations displaced by disasters also place burdens on water supplies and introduce the potential for waterborne diseases due to poor water and sanitation conditions or insufficient personal hygiene.
In the aftermath of a disaster or emergency, there is often no power, electricity, infrastructure or time to send drinking water samples to a laboratory for water quality testing.
It is crucial to conduct water quality testing following a disaster in order to protect public health, and to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases and the transmission of fecal pathogens.
