"Rapid Microbiology Field Instrumentation: Source Tracking in Sensitive Areas" was recently published in the Institute of Water Magazine (Q3, p. 86, 2018). This study, performed by the UK Environment Agency, presents an excellent example of operational usage of ALERT technology by the Agency in order to identify pollution sources on the beaches and rivers arouns Scarborough.

Conclusion: The operational deployment of a combination of ALERT System and ALERT LAB instruments at this and other sites has allowed the Environment Agency to clearly identify locations where sources of fecal indicator bacteria resulted in water quality problems, and to better focus recourses on those areas. The results demonstrate that Fluidion ALERT technology can provide rapid and reliable bacterial measurements in operational field conditions, greatly improving contamination source tracking in sensitive areas and enabling improved protection for all water users.
