Jim Harry hardly needs to visit one area of the Albany-Millersburg Water Treatment Plant. That’s where ZAPS Technologies LiquID Station water monitoring system is set up.
“We don’t have to have anyone there to monitor it. It it’s a stand-alone unit,” said Harry. “It does everything on its own.”
Developed by Gary Klinkhammer, a professor of oceanography at Oregon State University, the equipment has been under development for 10 years. The company formed a little over three years ago and has a joint patent on the equipment with the Environmental Protection Agency.
