Environmental monitoring plays a vital role in ensuring that project sites throughout Alberta uphold current government standards and protect the vitality of the surrounding area. When implemented properly, environmental monitoring provides a valuable picture of whether or not the existing conservation methods are successful and can help prevent serious mishaps in the future. From the Energy Sector to Oil and Gas, transportation, infrastructure and more, measuring the impact of a project’s operations keeps companies accountable as well as avoids the pitfalls of noncompliance.

What Is The Purpose of Environmental Monitoring?
As mentioned above, a key goal of conducting routine evaluations is to gather information about the changes and developments to the environment. While there are various methods used to do so, the data gathered can help answer crucial questions such as:
- Are there benefits to the local communities from sustainable natural resource use?
- What are the effects on natural habitats and ecosystems?
- Are the local populations of plants and animals increasing or decreasing? What is causing either result?
- Have the management intervention systems in place had the intended impact on the ecosystem?
In sum, environmental monitoring plays an important role in the protection of human health, as well as the long term sustainability of all involved environmental systems.
