Water Quality Monitoring Systems

Monitoring and enforcement

Water quality monitoring program plays an important role in water resource management. Water quality monitoring consists of data and sample analysis performed by using acceptable protocols. Monitoring includes analysis of data to support decision-makers. Under new environmental regulation (the Enhancement and Conservation of National Environmental Quality Act, 1992), there are two types of monitoring programs: effluent and receiving water quality monitoring. The owner or possessor of point sources of pollution is required for the collection of statistics and data, the making notes and reports of the effluent monitoring program. The monitoring of receiving water quality is done by the government agencies to maintain the quality of waters and to produce the state of annual water quality report for the country.
