Calculating NSF Water Quality Index (WQI)
Written by Mr. Brian Oram, PG

Water quality index is a 100-point scale that summarizes results from a total of nine different measurements when complete.

Using the book Field Manual for Water Quality Monitoring, the National Sanitation Foundation surveyed 142 people representing a wide range of positions at the local, state, and national level about 35 water quality tests for possible inclusion in an index. Nine factors were chosen and some were judged more important than others, so a weighted mean is used to combine the values.

So that field measurements could be converted to index values, respondents were asked by questionnaire to graph the level of water quality (0 through 100) corresponding to the field measurements (e.g., pH 2-12). The curves were then averaged and are thought to represent the best professional judgment. The updated calculator allows you to enter the latitude and longitude for the site or pick this location from the Google Earth Map. The calculator completes the individual and group calculation and permits you to generate a customized report.

Coronavirus Outbreak


Coronavirus Outbreak

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Adept Technologies is a totally distributed company, so everyone works from wherever they are in the world. It could be a coffee shop, it could be their home, it could be a co-working space, it could be in one of our offices. We hire people regardless of where they are.

Over 80 percent of our workforce already work from home. This ideology has been in action for almost 19 years. It works, but now with this Coronavirus Outbreak issue, it is shocking how other corporations including clients that have asked us for guidance. We are helping, the technology is easy and available to setup. Our MyAdept.com systems are SaaS and are available to access as long as you have an internet connection. We recommend if your software vendor doesn’t allow remote access, to get rid of them!

We are confident that this Coronavirus Outbreak will wind down. But we as a planet need to learn from our past mistakes. We are happy that 19 years ago our business model was right on. We never thought of the Coronavirus back then, just losing talented people that didn’t want to move to Florida or New York.

We at Adept are very busy, no down time, and we are available for anyone that needs help.

Be safe out there.
