The following article presents the first phase of implantation of the Centralized Management project of wastewater quality. From the Inspection and Environmental Control Service the need to implant a project that integrates the different tasks carried out by the service arose in order to obtain the maximum benefit of them all, offering environmental services of high added value to control and reduce pollution. During the remote control phase of water quality two Quality Stations have been initiated, one of general character at the entry of a filter system and other one of industrial character in the connection of an Industrial Estate. The two Quality Stations have been remote controlled, therefore, conductivity sensors have been installed, as well as refreshed automatic sampling testers that work 24 hours a day, thus a pollution episode can be characterized from the beginning. Hereby, it will be possible to have the necessary tools to reinforce the degree of knowledge and the control of the system, increasing the diagnostic capability by means of the detection of incidents caused by spillages.
