Research project: SecurEau – Security and decontamination of drinking water distribution systems following a deliberate contamination event.

Currently Active: 
Yes

The main objective of SecurEau is to launch an appropriate response for rapidly restoring the use of the drinking water network after a deliberate contamination event (whether biological, chemical or radiological).

SecurEau is a European Commission funded project under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). It involves academic and industrial partners from the UK, France, Germany, Portugal, Finland and Latvia.
The University of Southampton is involved in the development of new technologies to detect low levels of contaminants, the assessment and improvement of existing decontamination protocols and the use of sensors for surveillance.
