Techniques for the automated monitoring of water quality during the treatment of potable and waste water are reviewed with a brief description of the operating principles of various types of instrumentation followed by a consideration of their integration into process control. The monitoring of river water quality is also considered from the wider point of view of analyses that give information on water quality rather than simply process control parameters.The review also considers related topics such as instrument specification, experiences of process control in various countries and takes a brief look at how the output from automated analyzers may be integrated with information in the form of expert systems and water quality models.Finally, the way in which laboratories are likely to change in the near future as a result of the introduction of robotic systems of analysis is discussed with illustrations from recent literature articles.
