Water pollution monitoring website to be unveiled

Philippines: The Balili River System Revitalization Coalition (BRSRC), a multi-sectoral group to harmonise efforts for the rehabilitation of the Balili River System, will soon have its own official website and web-based pollution monitoring system of the river.

The web-based pollution monitoring system has a special component, an SMS or short messaging system feature which will cover reports from the barangays affecting the Balili River including those identified by BRSRC. The system is also capable of real time reporting.

The concepts of GIS will be translated into a web application to monitor the status of the Balili River based on standard river monitoring parameters.
