- Turbidimeter not calibrated per manufacturer or at least quarterly: Morgan informed me that the used bench top turbidimeter they were expecting as a donation from another water system is no longer an option. there was a power surge that damaged the unit. The system is no considering a used HACH 1720e online turbidimeter with an SC 100 or SC200 controller. Next steps: The operator will look into the cost of installing and operating the 1720e turbidimeter. I advised Morgan to reach out to the Oregon Association of Water Utilities (OAWU). They may be able to locate another water system with a bench top unit for sale, or if the system decides to acquire an online 1720e turbidimeter, OAWU may even be willing to help with the installation. OAWU water treatment specialists may also have good advise on best option between the SC100 and SC200, and the availability of spare parts for this turbidimeter. The 1720e is outdated and I donít know if it is hard to find parts or not. corrective action due date is now September 30, 2022.
