Case study: combating fouling from fresh water in pipework

Case study: combating fouling from fresh water in pipework

In this case study we discuss the RWS monitoring station in Eijsden. Since 1974, this floating pontoon has been carrying out 24/7 measurements to analyze the water quality.

Ensuring clean water is one of Rijkswaterstaat’s main tasks. That is why they continuously measure the biological and chemical quality of the water. The RWS monitoring station is used to analyze water samples and thus assess the water quality. There are three monitoring stations that carry out comparable activities: in Lobith, Keizersveer and Eijsden.

This study describes the situation at the monitoring station in Eijsden, what problems they encountered and how the Ultrasonic Antifouling System has helped.
