Using real-time monitoring for rapid assessment of remediation strategy effectiveness

In this case study, designed to detect the distribution and direction of travel of an injected colloidal remediation agent, a predicted monitoring timeframe of 18 months was reduced to 3 months. This was possible by the innovative deployment of water quality sondes collecting high resolution turbidity data in real time. As a result, technical and cost-saving decisions on the effectiveness of the programme were made over a year earlier than expected.
