World Water Monitoring Day is celebrated on September 18 to raise awareness and engage the public in water monitoring and protection of water resources around the world. It kicks off a month of global efforts to raise awareness and engage the public in water monitoring and protecting water resources from pollution.
Held annually between September 18 and October 18, the program encourages communities to monitor the condition of local rivers, streams, estuaries and other water bodies.
The diagnostic platform developed by GreenTropism, combining health and data sciences, is perfectly suited to the challenges of monitoring and controlling the microbiological quality of water, whether it be wastewater or swimming.
Thanks to artificial intelligence, and predictive models, the platform allows to detect pathogens, viruses or bacteria, upstream, and/or to follow the evolution of a possible contamination.
The challenge being for wastewater to enable the detection by continuous monitoring, quickly and upstream, of the presence of viruses for a more efficient control of the epidemic evolution in a given geographical area – especially in hospital buildings, and a management of the associated risks.
Bathing water also represents a major public health issue, which is expected to continue to grow in importance, particularly in the context of the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, where several swimming events will be held in the Seine and Marne rivers.
Indeed, swimming activities involve health risks caused by ingestion, inhalation or skin contact with poor quality water. The solutions developed by GreenTropism allow the continuous control of the absence of pathogens in swimming waters, and white waters, to ensure the microbiological quality.
