The water quality monitoring and control jobs (both raw and clean water) in many localities and water supply units are quite good; monitor and control equipments are operated regularly and continuously; processing information is faster and providing information quite promptly and accurately. However, many water supply businesses have not yet paid enough attention or invested insufficiently. The work of internal and external inspection isn’t strict in some places.
VUCICO hopes that the technologies and equipment introduced by VUCICO during the seminar will contribute a part to the water quality monitoring and management of many localities in particular and the country in general.
