ADASA's technology is used in the iBathwater European Project for bather’s health protection
Spain / Germany
iBathwater is an initiative funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union that demonstrates how integrated management of urban drainage helps to reduce the impact of discharged and untreated urban rainwater on the natural environment and public health. iBathwater uses ADASA’s aquaBio and an open software platform to coordinate tasks involved in operating sewage systems and makes it possible to combine information from existing infrastructure with online measurements from water quality monitoring sensors. Two monitoring sites have been set up in Barcelona, aiming to improve wastewater monitoring, treatment, and management in and around the city. In addition, two monitoring sites have been set up in Germany (Sophienwerder and River Havel, Berlin), providing valuable data during two bathing seasons (2019 and 2020). ADASA’s solution for online microbiological water monitoring, aquaBio, collects data and detects concentrations of E.coli and enterococci through its optical measuring system, which is fully operational in fresh and saltwater.
