Stockholm Vatten monitoring buoy upgrade

posted in: News | 0

As part of the collaboration between Stockholm Vatten (a PROGNOS stakeholder) and Uppsala University, Stockholm Vatten’s profiling monitoring buoy at the Lovö water treatment plant was upgraded with assistance from Luode consulting. The newly upgraded system will provide information on water temperature, pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, DOC, fluorescence, chlorophyll fluorescence and Phycocyanin fluorescence (cyanobacteria indicator). These data will provide Stockholm Vatten with improved monitoring of water withdrawn from Lake Mälaren and will serve as an input to the model forecasts being developed by PROGNOS.
