What is Environmental Monitoring?
New developments or facilities operating under a licence or permit are often required, in response to planning/license conditions or EIS mitigation measures, to monitor certain environmental parameters in their surrounding environment. The requirement is particularly common where a facility or development is located near or within a protected area, proximate to water bodies or in areas of high amenity. Construction works or the ongoing operations of a facility can impact upon several aspects of the environment, in particular on air, dust, water and noise.
