Abstract

Drinking water contamination, accidental or intentional, is one of the most formidable threat scenarios faced by developed countries. Drinking water distribution systems are often outdated, vast and complex, making them difficult to monitor and vulnerable to multiple threats. Contamination incidents cause public fear and anxiety in society and generate distrust in public infrastructure. It is therefore essential to detect harmful substances as early as possible in order to manage the contamination situation and minimize the effects.
