Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper describes the development and application of methodologies for detecting and measuring chemical and biological contaminants within water supply systems, including piping, fittings and fixtures. A particular emphasis is on measuring the accumulation of contaminants in water, on substrates in contact with water, the interactions between the water/contaminant fluid and the piping system materials, deposits and biofilms, and verifying the effectiveness of decontamination procedures. Some of the measurement methods investigated include fluorescence intensity, and dispersive Raman, gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer, and ion-selective electrodes.
