Dischargers to the environment are required to take regular samples of their discharges to demonstrate compliance with consent limits. Evaluation International and its members worked with WRc to survey all automatic wastewater samplers and to enable their members to make informed choices when selecting and purchasing such equipment.
The research report identified design and selection criteria that users need to take into account when selecting a sampler. It provided guidance on the pros and cons of various types of sampler design in different situations. The research also provided full specifications for all wastewater samplers on the market, at the time of the survey, in a common format.
- The research document will enable Evaluation International and its members to make informed purchasing and operating decisions about wastewater samplers.
Copies of the guide (S 1809 X 03 - Selection Guide for Water Samplers) are available at the WRc Bookshop - www.webookshop.com.
