The National Research Council Centre for Sustainable Infrastructure Research (NRC-CSIR) has new laboratory facilities for testing water quality.
The technology can use pilot-scale experiments that mimic drinking water distribution systems. For example, it  provides the ability to study water quality in old pipes, to determine what causes the deterioration of quality, and it can provide solutions.
It can also be used to test and develop drinking water treatment processes, as well as infrastructure materials and monitoring techniques, says NRC. Its technologies include automated controls, ports for studying lead, copper, biofilms, etc. and the capability to sutdy biological control and disinfectant dynamics.
NRC-CSIR, based in Regina, Saskatchewan, is seeking partners to collaborate in research using the facility.
