The MRMC is a unique piece of infrastructure enabling remote monitoring of a variety of water, wastewater and aquatic environments. The MRMC was jointly funded by the EPA and NUI Galway. The system can (i) be moved to any location, (ii) operate on mains power or using an on board generator, (iii) operate autonomously and (iv) can provide real time data on the environment it is measuring.

Some of the main features of the MRMC include:

  • On-site measurement of water, wastewater & gaseous parameters
  • Measured parameters include
    • COD, NH4-N, NO3-N, PO4-P, SS, pH, DO, ORP, temperature, flow
  • GAS
    • NH3, CH4, CO2, H2S, N2O
  • Remote interrogation of logged data
  • Equipment storage, sink, workbench, upgrade capability
  • Powered by generator on remote sites
  • Available for research and commercial use
  • Potential users include Local Authorities, Enforcement Agencies & Industry
