Pollution Monitoring and Control

Monitoring is done to ensure that the quality of water in the water bodies confirms the recommended standards and the effluent discharged into the water bodies complies with the required effluent standards of receiving water. There are twenty (20) discharge points from industries and twenty four (24) river points; three (3) groundwater sources, two (2) lakes and one (1) dam. Their monitoring is done by collecting samples from different sampling stations in the Rivers and discharge points from industries.

Water quality and pollution control data are collected from identified and unidentified sources by basin staff i.e. environmental engineers in collaboration with water quality laboratory staff. Some parameters are measured on-site and others taken to the laboratory for further measurement, processing, analyzing, storing and disseminating.
