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are often outdated, vast and complex, making them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.
