Validation of BACTcontrol as an online waste water Monitoring System and Microbiological Early Warning System.
The presence of dangerous micro organisms in water used in food processing or surface water can be a real threat for human health. The constant monitoring and control of the presence of such dangerous pathogens is therefore of big importance.
In a collaboration project between a local Waterboard and microLAN the bacterial activity of the effluent of Kaatsheuvel golf park treatment plant was determined. This was done by both the BACTcontrol and the traditional plate counting method. After treatment and quality check, the water is re-used in the golf park.
