Salinity/aggressivity assessment is a process that is used to measure the amount of dissolved salts and minerals in water, and to determine how these levels might affect the quality of the water and any infrastructure that comes into contact with it.

Salinity refers to the concentration of salt in water, and is typically measured in parts per thousand (ppt) or in electrical conductivity (EC). High levels of salinity can have negative impacts on water quality, including reducing the ability of plants to grow, changing the taste and odour of water, and causing corrosion in pipes and other infrastructure.

Aggressivity refers to the corrosive potential of water, which can be influenced by the types and levels of minerals present in the water. The aggressivity of water can be assessed by measuring the pH and alkalinity of the water, as well as the levels of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals. If the water is too aggressive, it can cause corrosion in pipes and other infrastructure, leading to leaks, contamination, and other issues.

Overall, salinity/aggressivity assessment is an important tool for ensuring that water is safe and reliable for use in a variety of applications, including drinking water, irrigation, and industrial processes. By understanding the salinity and aggressivity of water, it is possible to identify potential issues and take steps to prevent or mitigate them, ensuring that water remains safe and healthy for people and the environment.
