Surface & Groundwater

NEW  Xylem Custom Systems + Solutions Brochure

Surface water can be affected by land use, agricultural practices, pollution and climate change. As you already know, monitoring and treatment of surface water requires significant investments in time and money. These investments and public health may be jeopardized if surface water changes during extreme events or contamination.

SonTek and other Xylem instruments work to provide a continuous and comprehensive record of water quantity and quality. Our instruments provide the reliable data you need to act quickly, work efficiently and reduce costs.

We understand the challenges of working in natural environments. Our systems play a key role in improving water quality and plant efficiency, while allowing for early warning and rapid response to events such as floods and algal blooms.
