Water Quality Monitoring & Management Research Group (WQMM) was established to investigate the existing situations of water bodies with respect to conventional as well as emerging pollutants. Our research has focused on quality evaluation of effluents and receiving water environments using on-site monitoring tools and computer modeling with PCSWMM in addition to laboratory analyses, as well as computer modelling of sewage and storm water collection systems using PCSWMM.
Our recent and current research areas towards water quality monitoring & management include: Pharmaceuticals & Personal care Products (PPCPs) in water environments
Bisphenol A (BPA) in water environments
On-site evaluation of biological quality of water bodies using Coliscan Easy Gel test kits.
Monitoring of spatial variations in DO in water environments using Yellow Spring instruments(YSIs) logging system for spot sampling as well as short-term and long-term profiling, and GIS applications
Mathematical modelling of effluent quality of municipality wastewater treatment plants using PCSWMM
Mathematical modelling of wastewater collection systems using PCSWMM
Sampling sites (WWTPs) in Bangkok Sampling Sites (STPs) in Seoul
Sampling points at some wastewater treatment plants WWTPs in Bangkok
Sampling points in six canals in Bangkok, Thailand
Water quality Investigations of the WWTP effluents and receiving water bodies in Bangkok
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) equipped with UV/Vis detector and fluorescence detector, Shimizu, Japan
