The UVT-LED transmittance water quality monitor is the first instrument of its kind to use efficient UV-C LED technology. The compact monitor delivers fast, accurate transmittance readings in the field, water treatment facilities or industrial settings. Simple to operate, with a clear backlit LED display, the unit takes automatic measurements every 60 seconds. Integrated wiping prevents fouling and buildup in all water conditions, with a self-calibration check to ensure continual accuracy.

The project was planned during a January conference call between SWT Executive Director Jim Bodenner, SWK Executive Director Don Arnold and WWIF Founder & CEO Guillermo Guzman.

Funding will go directly to supporting provision of safe drinking water and basic sanitation, and help create water, sanitation and hygiene programs
A new initiative led by Nevada’s Desert Research Institute (DRI) is aiming to dramatically reduce the number of people around the world without access to clean water.
