ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING

Gas monitoring is usually undertaken as part of the contaminated land investigation, and is used to identify gas flows and concentrations of methane and carbon dioxide which can pose a risk to development structures.

 

Gas monitoring is required where ground gas may be an issue at a proposed development, for example on sites near landfills or areas of infilled ground, or where peat is present within the underlying ground. Data is acquired using a portable device.

 

The concentrations and flow rates recorded can be used to determine the level of gas protection required in a structure. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can also be monitored where risks from hydrocarbons may be an issue.
