A new version of the Sanitary Standard for Drinking Water will present a promising future for the drinking water monitoring industry
Drinking water for living refers to the supply of drinking water and domestic water for daily life. With the rapid development of the economy and the increasing population, drinking water pollution has posed a major threat to human survival and safety, and has become a major obstacle to human health, economic and social sustainable development.
According to a survey conducted by the world's authoritative agencies, 80 % of all diseases in developing countries are transmitted by drinking unhygienic water, and drinking unhygienic water causes at least 20 million deaths each year. Therefore, drinking water pollution is called "the number one killer in the world."
Drinking water safety has always been the focus of social attention. The National monitoring network for drinking water in rural areas has been in operation since 1992, and the National monitoring network for drinking water in urban areas has been in place since 2007. At present, the monitoring of drinking water in urban and rural areas in China covers more than 300 cities, counties and cities in 31 provinces, more than 2,800 districts and counties, and more than 95 % of townships.
In March 2018, with the continuous attention paid by the State to the safety of drinking water, the State Commission for Health Care, jointly with relevant ministries and commissions, launched a new round of revision of the Sanitation Standards for Drinking Water. A new version of the Sanitation Standard for Drinking Water and Life is expected by 2020. The new standards will incorporate indicators of health hazards into the standards and introduce the latest testing methods.
In recent years, with the continuous improvement of drinking water safety and security requirements, more and more online meters and equipment have been applied to drinking water quality supervision. The water quality of drinking water is monitored online, and one party warns against possible incidents of excessive water quality to prevent unqualified tap water from entering residents 'families; In addition, a large number of water quality data of the pipeline network can also support the waterworks to optimize the water treatment process and the pipeline network water transmission and dispatch decision-making.
In the water plant, online turbidity analyzer, residual chlorin/total chlorine analyzer, pH analyzer, alkaline analyzer, swimming current analyzer, etc. with various ranges have a wide range of applications, participating in the process of automatic addition of water plants, chlorination and other processes. control, The application of online water quality analysis has greatly improved the automatic running level of tap water, and greatly ensured the safety and reliability of tap water quality.
The Health China Action(2019-2030), which was announced recently, calls for more investment, management and maintenance of drinking water engineering facilities. By 2022 and 2030, the quality of drinking water will have improved and continued to improve.
Ensuring the safety of drinking water is a long-term task. With the continuous attention of the state to the safety of drinking water, the input of drinking water quality monitoring instruments and equipment will continue to increase, and the drinking water monitoring industry will usher in more room for growth.
In addition, with the introduction of new standards and driven by the development of various high and new technologies such as big data and the Internet of Things, online water quality analysis instruments and their application technologies will be further developed.
