WATER MANAGEMENT


technology and data management systems for capture and analysis of this data. Published articles seem to focus more on the outcome and ways to fix problems with water systems. Where is the emphasis on data? It is the data that is needed to make an informed decision on risk control, such as the need to sample or the need to carry out remedial alterations. Looking at HSG274 Part 2 and HTM04-01 Part B, both detail temperature monitoring and the need for return loop temperatures to be monitored. It is not the easiest task to identify the position of the loops and then devise an efficient approach to routine monitoring. I expect a few readers will now be nodding in agreement that loop monitoring is still a ‘nettle to be grasped’.


Conclusion The world is changing – and some organisations are going to be left behind – being left behind will increase the gap to achieving and demonstrating compliance with legislation and guidance. Water systems and the chosen control


strategies need to be monitored, to prove systems are compliant. The degree of monitoring required and how best to achieve that data capture is the key change to be observed. We live in a digital age, in the next decade the millennial


generation will take the reins of leadership and, as such, the electronic handling of compliance data is the way forward. The means of water analysis will have


moved on too: rapid microbiology technologies will be better understood and optimised for practical use. Consequently, when electronic monitoring systems report failures, rapid testing of water samples will follow and the two together will enable quicker response times all round. It is time to shake hands with the future – prevention is better than cure.
