Routine monitoring programs allow you to monitor possible impacts your activities may be having on your people, plant and/or environment. A consistent, regular program with sound scientific foundations will give you confidence that you are doing the right things to meet your environmental responsibilities. You will have the opportunity to learn about your operational impact and how to minimise it pro-actively.

Routine monitoring programs are designed differently depending on their purpose and where you are in the business life-cycle. Help us match your particular needs to the most relevant standards, guidelines, licences or permits (if they apply) and, of course, your own operational requirements.

We can devise an effective, yet economic program that fits your needs, location, environment and purpose of monitoring.

We can monitor your:

  • Stormwater
  • Potable water
  • Trade waste
  • Effluent/process water
  • Groundwater
  • Water and wastewater treatment plants
  • Irrigation water
  • Recycled water
  • Soil
  • Plant Tissue

Routine Monitoring Programs involve:

  • Sampling program design
  • Sample collection
  • Laboratory liaison
  • Interpretive reporting
  • Remedial actions for all aspects of water quality

Environmental Monitoring Program Design

Our qualified scientists can design a monitoring program specific to your needs.This is done by looking at factors such as:

  • Public health requirements
  • Local, State and Federal legislation
  • Environmental licences
  • Existing sample sites and parameters
  • Previous monitoring results
  • Infrastructure specifics
  • External environment concerns
  • Other site requirements

Monitoring Programs provide:

  • Proactive environmental management
  • Early advice for possible concerns
  • Cost and time efficient solutions
  • Compliance with your environmental responsibilities

Routine Environmental Monitoring & Water Sampling Programs

S&B’s field officers and environmental officers will take responsibility for ensuring the monitoring program is completed to the design and time frame.S&B’s crew do all the organising and sampling for you.

  • NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited procedures in water and soil sampling
  • Specially prepared EASI-sample kits
  • Guaranteed sample integrity both on-site and en-route to the laboratory

Only NATA accredited sampling provides results that will protect you in litigation.

We work closely with Symbio Laboratories, a market leader in rapid turnaround, high quality, analytical testing for the food, agricultural and environmental industries in Australia. All test methods are based on Australian Standards or recognised international references (e.g. AOAC, AOCS, AACC, APHA, USEPA).

Impact & Compliance Reporting

Scientific results from a laboratory do not mean much without effective interpretation.

Our experienced scientists and engineers can help you receive and interpret your water testing results through succinct management or operational reporting.

The Operational Reporting Process

  • Program Design: Your input is required to define what components will be included in the report.
  • Interpretation: S&B Scientists and Engineers study findings and create conclusions.
  • Reporting: The final report includes current findings and highlights changes or discrepancies you need to be aware of.

As the Routine Monitoring program progresses more results become available.

Impact and Compliance Reports can be developed with these results to give meaningful insight for future water system and environmental management.

Recommendations on eliminating problems and improving overall performance can also be provided.The data behind the reports can be made available in simple Excel spread sheets or as an upload into your database.

Laboratory Liaison

Simmonds & Bristow can help you with:

  • Sampling Support
  • Choosing Test and Test Suites
  • Scientifically Based Sampling
  • Guideline and Specification Reporting
