TGM WRI is ready to start continuous monitoring of water quality in the Bečva river
TGM WRI has entered the last phase of preparation of continuous monitoring of water quality in the Bečva river below Valašské Meziříčí in the locality of Lhotka nad Bečvou. A monitoring station has been set up here, which will use the Daph Tox II device, which works with daphnia (of the pearl mussels order) as organisms sensitive to changes in water quality. TGM WRI received the building permit in July 2021, the construction work was in progress until January 2022, the final approval was given on March 7, 2022. Negotiations are now underway with the electricity supplier to start its supply. Subsequently, all functions of the station will be checked (ventilation, heating, building security, information transfer) and then the Daph Tox device will be brought and verification operation will start. The station has already been operationally taken over by the TGM WRI branch in Ostrava.
