We Are Water Quality Technologies!
As a global systems integrator to the water treatment industry. we pool the best in class technology in water treatment, systems monitoring and control, and purification from a myriad of water sources all the way through the system to the point of application, use, or dispense. Terra Marra is not only a consortium of companies delivering on this proven philosophy, but also is a cadre of talent, scientists, engineers, software developers, consultants and professionals assembling these “pieces” and customizing the fit to our global customers on an application by application basis.
Here at Terra Marra, TMI, we trust you will discover that this finely honed systemic approach not only makes scientific sense, but also has merit and feasibility in your application, facility, and in your critical asset protection.
For example, if you have a Legionella outbreak there will certainly be a number of issues you will need to address, maybe for the first time. TMI’s expert consultants will help you identify each problem, where to turn for help, and even assemble a team of experts to provide you with a broad range of solutions.
One of the most fundamental steps following an outbreak might be to secure a public relations expert who knows how to present your side of the story to the public. TMI will help you secure an industry professional who not only knows how to navigate through any media hail storm but also has expertise in the area specific to your needs.
Your next step might be to secure a lawyer who has dealt with the problem from both sides. TMI will set you up with legal counsel that knows your risk of exposure and how to better communicate your situation to various stakeholders such as insurance carriers, your staff, and government agencies.
Environment of Care Exposure
While our experts are positioning your company publically following an outbreak you will also simultaneously need to have your entire water system tested for the pathogenic bacteria in order to determine it’s DNA so that you know specifically which Legionella pathogenic or non-pathogenic sero group you have in your water system. It is crucial to get these results fast, say within 4 hours rather than having to wait 10 days. This can make a world of difference in terms of remediation costs.
Plumbing System Exposure
Following the receipt of your test results TMI will set you up with a certified safety plumbing engineer who can begin to discover the root cause of the problem, determine where the problem may have occurred, and determine which remediation methods need to be set in place in order to eradicate the problem.
From Eradication to Proactive Strategizing.
TMI will assist you in addressing the following questions to ensure residual protection of your facility:
- Is just surveillance of your water system enough?
- Are plumbing system changes needed?
- Do you need to consider installing short term point of use filters?
- What are the benefits of installing a permanent systemic solution?
Knowing which solution works best for you requires the insight of a company with diversified options who can explain the pros and cons for each possible solution without any prejudice versus someone with a myopic opinion. Terra Marra International uses this approach when offering solutions for:
- Water Management Surveys
- Energy and Utility Sustainability Audits
