Environmental Monitoring Services
  • Ambient Environmental Noise Monitoring
  • The monitoring of the ambient environmental noise levels are done in accordance with SANS 10103:2008 - The Measurement and Rating of Environmental Noise with Respect to Annoyance and to Speech Communication (baseline as well as the annual re-assessments required under the Environmental Impact Assessment Guidelines), to determine the impact that new operations or developments could have on the ambient noise environment and the surrounding communities as well as the impact that established operations have due to their age or the encroachment of new residential developments on industrial zones due to the constrictions of land availability.

  • Dustfall Monitoring Programme

    The implementation and management of a Dustfall Monitoring Programme (Dust Deposition Monitoring or Fallout Dust Monitoring) in accordance with the requirements of the National Dust Control Regulations of 2013, as read with Section 32 of the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act, 2004 (Act No.39 of 2004), whereby any operation that by the nature of its activities creates dust, is required to implement a Dustfall Monitoring Programme conforming to the monitoring standards as prescribed in the American Standard for Testing and Materials Method D1739 (ASTM D1739).

    The Dustfall Monitoring Programme forms part of the baseline Environmental Impact Assessment process that is conducted for new developments as well as established activities and is to determine firstly the potential impact that new activities might have on the ambient environment, or secondly what impact an established activity has on the ambient environment.

    The dustfall monitoring services that InDuna Risk Management render to clients are not limited to the conventional pole and bucket system but also include more modern monitoring methods such as direct reading instrumentation with data logging capabilities that focus on PM10 and PM2.5 dust loads.

    These stations can be positioned in any monitoring area and they are capable of operation from an independent power source with no need for external Eskom power connections. These monitoring stations are capable of transmitting data over various modes of communication from GSM to radio frequency transmitters that feeds data directly into the clients’ plant control room SCADA System and is intended for operations that need to maintain an Air Emission Licence from the Department of Environmental Affairs.

  • Surface and Groundwater Quality Monitoring

    The National Environmental Management Act requires that a risk assessment must be conducted to determine the impact of any new or existing operation, through an Environmental Impact Assessment. The Department of Water Affairs also requires that an application has to be obtained for a water use licence.

    This licence together with the requirements of the Environmental Management Plan requires that surface and groundwater quality monitoring must be conducted at a prescribed frequency. The water use licence indicates what chemical and bacteriological analysis must be done at what intervals to maintain the validity of the water use licence and to monitor and prevent any environmental incidents from occurring.

    InDuna Risk Management assists clients by conducting surface and groundwater assessments in the working environment and recommends the best system of control to mitigate the risks identified.

  • Stack Emission Monitoring

    Stack Emission Monitoring is conducted to determine the contaminant volumes that are released into the atmosphere and the effectiveness of the control measures implemented to reduce the release of such contaminants.

    Monitoring includes the assessment of particulate matter and gaseous vapours and comparing the results to the guideline values prescribed in the National Environmental Management Act.

    InDuna Risk Management assists clients by facilitating stack emission assessments in the working environment and recommends the best system of control to mitigate the risks identified.
