A world-class mobile water quality monitoring vehiclewill be deployed in late October to the Water Supply Security Command Center for the first China International Import Expo (CIIE) to ensure the high quality and efficiency of the water supply during the fair, according to the water supply department responsible for the upcoming Expo.

Since the first CIIE, a significant move for the Chinese government to push forward a new round of high-level opening-up, is to be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) in November, currently all the preparatory work is being conducted in all aspects. In terms of water guarantee, key tasks including emergency drills for water shortages, the renovation of the weak water supply network around the exhibition center, and the continuing improvement of water quality, have been implemented gradually.

According to Zhao Jian, senior engineer of the Municipal Water Supply Monitoring Center, the monitoring vehicle can efficiently monitor 44 pollutants such as volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds, volatile phenols and cyanide.“Before, the monitoring of water had to go through the process of taking contaminated water samples, sending themto the laboratory, and doing experiments, which took at least three hours to get a result. With this monitoring car which will arrive at the expo site, at least half of the time will be reduced. The continuous sampling and real-time monitoring till the contamination is eliminated improves our capability to respond to emergent awful situations.”
