Water Quality Solutions in the Palm of Your Hand

Penn State Extension is offering an innovative new mobile device app—called H2OSolutions—to help private water system owners and professionals evaluate wells, springs, and cisterns. 

The objective of the app is to help users diagnose the causes of observed water-quality problems and guide water-testing decisions.

“This app will allow private water system owners to diagnose problems while they are actually looking at their water supply,” said Bryan Swistock, water resources extension specialist.

The free Apple version of the app (for use on iPhones and iPads) is available at the App Store. An Android version of the app is currently under development and should be available soon.
