Global Applications


Freshwater river and lake systems managed and located near farming and areas of heavy agriculture. Eco Detection data supports compliance, fertiliser management and environmentally-conscious farming.

Urban &
Industrial Waterways

Eco Detection data supports quality assurance and compliance. Industry can monitor its water input/output streams and optimise processes to meet with regulation and avoid environmental risks to operations.

Wastewater Treatment & Management

Eco Detection can assist Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) control systems to ensure that treated water is meeting required standards for release into the environment.

& Construction

Continuous monitoring of process and storage water concentrations to provide evidence of compliance and remediation. Real-time contaminant alerts for improved response times to environmental leaching.

& Horticulture

Data to demonstrate nutrient levels are within optimum ranges for irrigation to land and productivity. Avoid elevated levels of nutrients which are toxic to aquatic ecosystems.

Coal Seam

Eco Detection can ensure that wastewater meets required standards for release into the environment.


Monitoring to ensure that drinking water meets required standards.

Why you need continuous freshwater monitoring

Social Licence

Social license

Regular and accurate water quality data helps you maintain and improve your licence to operate as regulators, farmers, industry and organisations.

Resource Security

Resource security

Organisations that accurately demonstrate environmental outcomes can be more secure over their resources and investments; making licensing and permits for water takes and discharges easier to obtain and renew.


Trust & compliance

Compliance needs to be visible to earn trust. Real-time water monitoring improves relationships between businesses sharing waterways through greater understanding and visibility around its quality and health.



Validated data from waterways helps all stakeholders to accept responsibility for catchment outcomes and improvement of water quality.

The Derwent Estuary Program (DEP) received funding from The Ian Potter Foundation to help install Eco Detection real-time water quality monitoring systems in six locations across the River Derwent catchment.

CEO of the DEP Ursula Taylor said “Eco Detection will measure nutrients in real time which has many benefits and has the potential to revolutionise how we monitor water quality in our rivers and streams.”

The River Derwent catchment provides around 60% of drinking water for the greater Hobart area and previous monitoring has shown warning signs that water quality has changed over the last 20 years.

“Like many catchments, there have been changes in land use, industrial use of freshwater and along with climate change, this has contributed to changes in water quality,” said Ms Taylor. “The new technology will measure nutrients as they have the potential to cause undesirable excessive algal growth including toxic algal blooms.”

Eco Detection has been working collaboratively with DEP and UTAS to refine its technology and is delighted that Tasmania will be the first Australian state to run such a project in a river system.
Led by Catchment Scientist Dr Bernadette Proemse the project is supported by a number of government and industry organisations who have committed additional funding and in-kind support to this three-year project including EPA Tasmania, TasWater, Hydro Tasmania, Huon Aquaculture, Norske Skog Boyer and Meadowbank Vineyard.

The funding was awarded by The Ian Potter Foundation, one of Australia’s major philanthropic foundations. The Foundation makes grants nationally to support charitable organisations working to benefit the community across a wide range of sectors including the arts, medical research, public health research, early childhood development, community wellbeing and environmental science. The Ian Potter Foundation aims to support and promote a fair, healthy, sustainable and vibrant Australia.
