MINWA field measurements back in action
MINWA -project has restarted the field season in early May.
The field research period of the MINWA-project is already well under way after the winter break. The measurements restarted in May at the MINWA test site in Aura, South-West Finland. The target premises is a single-family household with a sequenced batch reactor for wastewater treatment. Both inflow and outflow measurement data are gathered from the site with continuous flow measurement devices as well as thrice a week by traditional methods. Both composite samples and the data received from automatic measurement devices are then analyzed in the laboratory.
According to field manager Teemu Koski, the measurements are running smoothly. The target site will, however, be relocated during the next month. Measurement data will be gathered from the current premises up until the new site is established.
MINWA student assistant Maiju Hannuksela, from the construction degree programme at TUAS, will be reporting weekly on the MINWA field blog. The blog can be found on minwa.info site’s Research and Development pages.
