Water quality monitoring in the basins allows accurately analysing criteria defining water quality, which varies noticeably over time and vertical space. The instruments include weather stations at the edge of the basin or in strategic positions to monitor those events that impact the basin, water rafts and central stations. The main purpose of the systems is to daily transmit the collection altitude where water with the best characteristics for potabilisation can be found. Monitoring the water quality in the basins is functional to preserving the water resources and the basins and to effectively plan the water resource management and checking the quality characteristics of water.
