The prolific bird life our waterways are home to, has rapidly dwindled. Waste water, sewage, sludge and silt have grossly polluted the environment that once sustained them.
Last Friday, 21st April, we celebrated World Earth Day, an awareness campaign to broaden and diversify the environmental movement worldwide. As EarthDay.Org boldly stated:
“When it comes to the Earth, there is no time to waste.”
The sooner we accept that water is life, the sooner we accept our responsibility in protecting and sustaining our water sources.
The time to act is now.
Paul How, Ecotech’s National Water Services Manager, stressed that for water monitoring, early warning systems are key.
“The more time we have to act to prevent waste water issues, the better.
There is very little gained knowing you’ve had a spill, after the fact. Placing early warning systems for water saves everyone: the water industry; employees, flora and fauna. Don’t cancel the flight. Prevent the destruction of waterway homes.”
Whether you work within mining companies, an environmental specialist company, heavy industry or government and council, industries are becoming more concerned with not just monitoring water usage, but also the levels of pollutants that may enter waterways as a result of their processes.
