Key Reference Documents
In December of 1999 the following industry report outlined the need for an Early Warning System and potential solution criteria...
International Life Science Institute (ILSI) Workshop Recommendations Published
in a Report Titled:
EARLY WARNING MONITORING TO DETECT HAZARDOUS
EVENTS IN WATER SUPPLIES
October 10, 2001-United States House of Representatives-Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure-Subcommittee on Water Resources and the Environment
House Testimony of Jeffrey J. Danneels (Sandia National Laboratories)
“Time delays with sampling and analysis are key drivers for the need for real-time
In 2001 the FBI issued this warning…
“As long as enemies of the United States of America exist,
terrorism could strike a US water supply unless
steps are taken to prevent such action.”

Using Profiling Buoy and Aqueduct Monitoring Technology, Joined with Current Sensor Technology as an Integral Component of
Early Warning Systems...
Goals and requirements”…
Remote Profiling Buoy Systems, Using Current Sensor Technology, Meets the Recommended Defined Criteria for Early Warning Systems:
As new sensors for biological and chemical "signatures" are commercialized, they will require an operating platform.
Remote data acquisition systems are ideal platforms for new and
emerging sensor technologies.
Most remote systems use standard communication protocols. New sensor developments will likely use a standard protocol and therefore can easily be integrated into buoy or other remote platforms with minimal cost for “real-time” assessment of the health of the aquatic system.
Predictive capabilities- differentiate between natural and unnatural occurrences to minimize harm.
Great expansion capabilities- use remote platforms to integrate new technology as they become available.
Predictive Models: A key element of an Early Warning System: Joining Current-Inexpensive Sensor Technology with Delivery Platforms to Generate Data Required for Proactive Models
Successful Early Warning Systems Must Present Water Quality Data in a Variety of Ways for Timely Response to Change
Allow Users to Present Data in a Visual User-Friendly
Format Turning “DATA INTO KNOWLEDGE”.
Conclusion: A need to allocate resources to applying current sensors and related technology in innovative ways - best Early Warning Solution for managers and the communities they serve.
Achieving Public Water Safety NOW….and Expanding for the Future.
