Smartphones to monitor the water quality of the Ni


Test of conductivity

First measurements of the water quality of the Niger River by smartphones.

12 enumerators (6 teams) collected data on the water quality of the river at 48 geo-referenced points in Bamako and surroundings. For each point, the following tests were done:
- Conductivity
- Temperature
- pH
- phosphates
- Nitrite – Nitrate
- Iron
- Chloride
- E. Colis
The results will be shared with several actors during a workshop to be held in January 2018. Three other measurements campaigns will be carried out during 2018.
