About Hach Homeland Security Technologies
Hach has been the foremost manufacturer of advanced analytical water quality testing systems for more than 65 years. With thousands of water quality instruments found in nearly all sectors of water treatment and distribution, Hach is the water industry’s trusted brand for reliable, quality products and continues to set the world’s standards for water quality monitoring.
After 9/11 Hach’s expertise in water quality technology allowed it to assume a leadership position in the critical, emerging field of water distribution system security. In 2002 Hach formed a separate research and development division, Hach Homeland Security Technologies. The elite group had one goal: To ensure the safety and quality of the nation’s drinking water.
Hach HST’s scientists and engineers set about developing innovative technology and breakthrough research for a comprehensive water distribution security system that could detect and alarm operators to contaminants and accidents in real time.
The result of their efforts is the GuardianBlue® Early Warning System, the first early warning system for drinking water designated and certified by the Department of Homeland Security.
