A major factor in the success or failure of any cooling water treatment program is the control and monitoring strategy used.  New monitoring techniques using computer technology have been developed which allow monitoring both the control of cooling tower systems and the performance of the treatment package.  These techniques allow the development of cause and effect relationships that facilitate optimization of the treatment program. Portable remote monitoring systems have been developed and their use is discussed.
