24 - 25 February 2016, JRC Ispra, Chemical and Biological Risks to Drinking Water TG Meeting
Purpose of the meeting was to complete the Work Programme 2016, agreeing on the allocation of tasks and to liaise with the EIP Action Group 100 Real Time Water Quality Monitoring (RTWQM). During 2016, the TG experts will work on the identification of the requirements for harmonisation/standardisation activities for real-time monitoring systems related to chemical and biological risks to drinking water. The focus is primarily water security in terms of responding to deliberate chemical and/or biological contamination of drinking water (as per definition of security), although it would also protect against the effects of natural disasters or accidents. Specific tasks will concern:
- the consultation of EUREAU and Member States associations;
- a survey on technical parameters targeted at sensor manufacturers (as result of the new established collaboration with Real Time Water Quality Monitoring (AG100) Action Group);
- to report and validate the results and the outcome in terms of standardisation proposal.
