In times of scarce resources and a steadily growing world population, environmental monitoring is of particular importance. It contributes to improving quality of life and public health by providing a valid database for political and technological decisions.
The analysis of water and wastewater, as a subarea of environmental analysis, plays a central role in this context. Although three-quarters of the earth are covered with water, only less than one percent can be used as drinking water. Growing pollution and climate change are further reducing the amount of clean, easily accessible drinking water. Water and wastewater analyses are therefore key measures taken by municipalities and states to improve water recycling continuously and to make available water resources safer.
