Here comes the rain! The rain season has officially started, and that means more storm event monitoring on construction sites. Are you ready?
The EPA Construction General Permit requires turbidity and pH measurements in the field, so you will need to have a pH meter and turbidity meter that are working and in good condition. If you are looking for a good Turbidity Meter - check out the Hanna 98703 Turbidity Meter.
Both the pH and turbidity meters will need to be calibrated before being used to ensure measurements are accurate. The state Department of Health requires surface-water treatment plant operators to calibrate them at least as often as recommended by the manufacturer. If your last calibration was more than three months ago, it’s probably time for a check-up.
If you need help with calibration, or finding the right equipment for the job, EnviroTech can help!
