From 23 July to 6 August, the largest Pfadi national camp Switzerland has ever seen will take place in Goms (VS).
Around 800 Scout groups from all over the country and some from abroad transform Goms (VS) into a huge tent city full of adventure and campfires. Here you can find more information about the Pfadi National Camp.
In order to ensure that the 30,000 or so people on site are well looked after, planning began years ago. In the meantime, more than 500 scout enthusiasts are working on a voluntary basis. They organise the big event with a lot of commitment, creativity and a sense of responsibility. A town the size of Sion was built in Goms for the national camp. It offers everything a scout's heart desires: from playgrounds to sanitary facilities, waste disposal and recycling stations, kiosks, a supermarket and an emergency surgery with medical staff, everything is available.
This also includes an extensive temporary drinking water network, which ensures the supply of water to the entire camp site.
Prompt and rapid analysis is crucial for ensuring the quality of the drinking water. An online flow cytometer - BactoSense - is used to monitor the microbiological quality at a central point in the pipe network. In addition, samples from other water points in the pipe network can also be analysed.
We would like to give you the opportunity to get to know the drinking water system and especially the quality control. For this purpose, we are organising a workshop on 19 July, to which we cordially invite you.
