The Orange County Sanitation District has an extensive environmental monitoring program and several innovative technologies have been used with great success, yet we still meet our compliance requirements the way we did thirty or more years ago. This begs the question: If we have better tools why don't we use them to meet our compliance requirements. This presentation will address some of the issues and impediments to using newer and faster tools to meet compliance criteria.
