River Monitoring goes Big Data
Convener: Theresa Wasinger 
Wed, 11 Apr, 10:30–12:00

Case study presentation:
36 stations monitor the quality of the water in the Ganges River in India and continuously send real time water quality data to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in New Delhi, the local government authority. The main focus of the Ganges real time monitoring project is to find organic and nitrogen pollutions in the river catchment and to analyze where most of the pollution occurs. The collected information strengthen the regulation and oversight of the river’s pollution load by helping planners better understand the origins of pollution, as well as to assess the impact of treatment on the water’s quality.
