Water quality monitoring of the Atoyac River in Mexico



Location: Puebla, Mexico

Application: River Monitoring

In December 2017 s::can has installed 12 monitoring systems in 9 stations along the Atoyac River as a service project for IPN, financed by the Puebla government, in order to measure the trends of water quality and to investigate the origin of industrial pollution. 20 parameters are getting measured with the s::can equipment. The Atoyac River is one of the most polluted rivers in the world.

s::can monitors the Ganges River



Location: India

Application: River Monitoring

In India, the Ganga river is seen as a holy water. However, industries, the population and cultural customs, such as the release of dead bodies into the water, pollute the river. Therefore, 36 monitoring stations along the Ganga river are installed and are sending accurate water quality data to the government for five years. Those stations are placed from the mountains of Gangotri to the plains of Kolkata, 1500 kilometres down the river. Guddu Baba, an activist fighting for the holy river, gave his blessings to our monitoring program and accompanies our video.
