Water Quality Monitoring

Water Quality Monitoring

We offer a range of water quality monitoring and sampling services in both lotic and lentic environments, whether for continuous monitoring or spot sampling. We use a range of methods to monitor physico-chemical parameters including, but not limited to, dissolved oxygen, temperature, alkalinity, conductivity, pH levels and nutrient levels.

Effluents and Discharge Monitoring

Effluents and Discharge Monitoring

Discharge consents under Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) stipulate limits for a number of water quality parameters for business, utilities and manufacturing companies and dictate that monitoring is undertaken to ensure that these limits are not breached and receiving watercourses are protected.

Pollution Response

Pollution Response

Watercourses are subjected to an increasing number of environmental pressures and despite stringent discharge permitting requirements, pollution incidents are unfortunate and often unforeseen occurrences. The long-term health of the aquatic environment and business operations can be protected through the careful monitoring of impacts and installation of remedial measures.

Macrophytes

Macrophytes

The presence, abundance, and diversity of macrophytes can serve as indicators of water quality, habitat conditions, and overall ecosystem health. By employing methods such as transect sampling, quadrat analysis, and GIS mapping, macrophyte surveys provide valuable data for environmental monitoring, conservation efforts, and management strategies. We offer identification services for emergent, submergent, riparian vascular macrophytes and bryophytes.

Macroinvertebrates

Macroinvertebrates

Freshwater macroinvertebrates are key indicators of waterbody health; used to assess a range of aquatic habitats and the environmental pressures acting upon them. As key components of Water Framework Directive (WFD) and other compliance assessments, RiverWood Ecology provides accurate data essential to any project requiring such classifications.

Diatoms

Diatoms

Diatoms are microscopic algae with a unique cell wall made of silica, and they play a crucial role in indicating the health of aquatic ecosystems. As diatoms respond rapidly to changes in their environment, they serve as effective bioindicators of water quality.
