Environmental Monitoring

Environmental monitoring is critical to knowing whether the quality of our environment is getting better or worse. The systematic sampling of air, water, soil and living organisms are conducted in order to observe and study the environment.

Water quality is monitored to ensure the water is fit to drink. Chemists measure water acidity, total dissolved solids, hardness and dissolved oxygen levels in this monitoring process.

Air quality is monitored to determine the levels of polluting oxides such as CO, NO2, and SO2 produced be vehicles and industries.

Soil quality is tested to determine the levels of contamination of heavy metals and organic pesticides discharged by industries and farms into the environment.
