Drinking water quality assessment and management [chapter 10]


The assessment of drinking water quality is one of the main applications of UV–visible spectrophotometry. From the quality of resources to tap water, UV sensing is used for the characterization of water resources (freshwater or groundwater) and drinking water even during rainfalls or floods, for water treatment assistance or as early warning system in the case of accidental or intentional contamination. On the other hand, UV measurement is more and more considered as a surrogate parameter for the monitoring or the prediction of disinfection by-products. Finally, UV spectrophotometry remains a good tool for the chemical characterization of drinking water either in the distribution system or packed in bottles.
