COMPUTER DETECTS WATER QUALITY TRENDS

NASSAU COUNTY IN LONG ISLAND (N.Y.) EMPLOYS GROUNDWATER AS ITS SOLE SOURCE, AND THERE ARE ALMOST 400 PUBLIC WELL INSTALLATIONS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY. WATER IS DELIVERED TO CONSUMERS THROUGH 44 SEPARATE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS. QUALITY CONTROL OVER THE PAST 15 YEARS HAD BECOME CUMBERSOME BECAUSE OF COUNTY GROWTH. ACCORDINGLY, A DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED TO SCREEN THE DATA, ACCEPT OR REJECT A SPECIMENT ON THE BASIS OF STANDARD DEVIATIONS, MAKE COMPARISONS OF DATA FROM DIFFERENT WELLS AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS, AND ANALYZE TRENDS THROUGH USE OF A NULL HYPOTHESIS. PLANS FOR IMPROVING WATER QUALITY THROUGH THE YEAR 2020 ARE ALSO DISCUSSED.
