CDT helps Skellefteå predict water problems

Published: 20 April 2012

Jan Pettersson, Project Manager at CDT, participates in SVT's Västerbottensnytt and explains how future sensors can give us a warning when water levels are to high, e.g. in a cesspool.

The parasite outbreak in Skellefteå has had effects on research. Currently, wireless sensors are being tested in some of Skellefteå cesspools, a wireless sensor detects when the water level rises too high and might reach the drinking water. So far it's a prototype that is tested, but in the future the sensor will also be able to alert if something is about to go wrong.
