Abstract

In 2012, the Global Water Research Coalition (GWRC, WRF is a GWRC member organization) funded this project to identify and document information on types, costs, and real-world experiences with the use of sensors in the global water and wastewater industry focusing on commercially available online monitoring technologies for the measurement of water quality and quantity. The main deliverable of this project is an online compendium, which includes general information on the workings of these technologies; advantages and disadvantages of the various technologies; and best practice information concerning installation, operation, maintenance, and calibration of instruments. Twenty-two case studies conducted by drinking water and wastewater utilities in United States, United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, South Africa, Singapore, and Namibia are also included. Finally, background documents including project summaries and conclusions, suggested reading, and best practices are found within the compendium. The Water Environment Research Foundation, a member of the GWRC, managed the project and published a report that accompanies the compendium. Both products are available to WRF subscribers. The online compendium can be accessed on this project page by clicking on Project Resources/Web Tools. Published in 2014.

**Update: As of October 2016, the compendium is offline for a major update and restructuring.Once it is live, we will provide updated login instructions. Thank you for your patience.
