YSI introduced the Vertical Profiler 15 years ago for the profiling of Water Quality parameters through the storage waters on major dams in order to provide an early warning to upset conditions approaching offtake towers that draw water for consumption.

The VPS has played a pivotal role in the decision making process for the management of Algae Blooms, Turbidity plumes and Dissolved Organic Matter concentrations in order to assist with pre-empting the water treatment process.
