Switzerland, the moated castle
Switzerland has roughly 3000 water-supply-sources, ensuring that we all have access to drinking water at any time.
Over one billion cubic meter of drinking water is provided, yearly. This corresponds with about 2 % of Switzerland's average rainfall.
Each day we use on average 400 l of drinking water per head.
The yearly cost of providing drinking water mounts to about 1.2 billion Swiss Francs.
Protecting the waters and securing the adequate supply with drinking water is extremely important.

Total organic carbon is a sum parameter which measures the concentration of organic substances in water. Low polluted waters have a TOC content of 1-2 mg/l. Highly polluted waters have a TOC content of over 10 mg/l.
Typically, vials pre-cleaned for TOC are used for trace-level TOC measurement, the validation of water installations or cleaning validations.
