A new online reference guide is giving water quality professionals access to a database of water contaminant information, and the regulatory standards associated with them.
The WaterTrax Parameters Portal, launched today, is available for free and offers a collection of regulatory and health related information for over 300 biological, chemical, and physical contaminants. It contains regulatory standards and guidelines for over 70 North American and international jurisdictions, including Health Canada. Detailed contaminant information such as descriptions, health and environmental implications, and links to supporting documentation, is also available.
The tool is designed to be a comprehensive resource for water and wastewater related industries, including water and wastewater operations managers, public works and environmental professionals, water quality professionals, water resources engineers, regulators, and students.
