Portal offers a free to access online parameters guide for water quality professionals
WaterTrax released WaterTrax Parameters Portal, an online reference guide that gives water quality professionals access to a comprehensive database of water contaminant information and the regulatory standards associated with them. The database is free and accessible for online public access.
WaterTrax Parameters Portal offers a comprehensive collection of regulatory- and health-related information for more than 300 biological, chemical and physical contaminants. It contains regulatory standards and guidelines for more than 70 North American and international jurisdictions, including the World Health Organization, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Health Canada. Furthermore, it offers detailed contaminant information such as descriptions, health and environmental implications, and links to supporting documentation. The information is based on standards provided by EPA and Health Canada, and is updated regularly.
The database can be used as a resource guide or tool for professionals in 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. For example, a water quality professional can use it to quickly reference information about water contaminants and accurately compare regulatory standards between jurisdictions.
“As a company that provides water quality information management software, WaterTrax Parameters Portal is a supplementary resource that supports our efforts to provide water quality professionals with the right tools that will help them ensure that drinking water is delivered safely to consumers and that wastewater is discharged safely back into the environment,” said Andrew Lewis, P.E., director of sales for WaterTrax.
