in situ measurements:

  • In several types of water: bathing water, river water and other types of water depending on the places
  • Parameters*: pH, conductivity at 25°C, dissolved oxygen, percentage of oxygen saturation, turbidity, temperature. Other parameters may be provided depending on the places.

Sampling of surface water and/or bathing water:

  • Analyses by a third party: microbiological* parameters (intestinal enterococci, E. coli, …) and chemical* (suspended matters, nitrates, organic carbon, total phosphorus, calcium, …)

* Non exhaustive list of parameters. This list will be adapted according to the chacracteristics of the waters and places.
