An Israeli-Canadian consortium unveiled a system to monitor water reservoirs for terrorist poisoning,  Israel’s Globes business daily reported.

Presented at the WATEC Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibition and Conference, in Tel Aviv, the system was shown to continuous spectrum analyzers to detect any organic change in water, providing water quality data every two minutes. It uses algorithms to identify the nature of any contamination, chemical, fuel, industrial waste, or paint thinner, for example.

The consortium includes Israel’s national water company, Mekorot National Water Company, and Canada’s Real Tech Inc., in collaboration with the  Technion Israel Institute of Technology and supported by Israel’s Office of the Chief Scientist and the Canada-Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation.
