Water is a critical resource

The quality of water needs to be monitored and controlled continuously, whether it be drinking water production followed by distribution to the consumer, wastewater treatment, the ecological quality of natural waters or industrial processes.

In all its activities, Benten proceeds from its vision that water quality monitoring is not a goal in itself, but a means to an end.

Collecting water quality data only makes sense if the data are reliable and can be converted into meaningful information to take effective action. This requires careful planning of the monitoring campaign, either by means of sampling and laboratory analysis or with the help of on-site sensor technologies.

Benten Water Solutions is a research and consulting company which aims to assist water utilities, water management boards, environmental agencies and industry to better understand all aspects of water quality. We provide expert support throughout the entire process of formulating water quality objectives and designing effective and cost-efficient monitoring strategies to collecting, interpreting and reporting water quality data within the relevant context.

Reporting on derogations under the EU Drinking Water Directive

Drinking water utilities which have been granted derogations for one or more water quality parameters under the EU DWD are required to report on these parameters to the Dutch Inspectorate. On behalf of five Dutch water utilities, Benten has reported on derogations for melamine, trifluoroacetic acid (TFA), glyphosate and its metabolite aminomethyl phosphonic acid (AMPA), chlorate and chlorite.
