Environmental monitoring and reporting are critical components of any environmental management plan. Relevant, accurate and timely data is the bedrock of effective environmental protection controls, and adhering to legal and compliance obligations.
At Hunter Environmental Consulting our trained and qualified team offer a range of services regarding environmental monitoring and reporting. Through detailed methodologies including physical and remote monitoring techniques, we can design and implement the right system to analyse and collect appropriate and accurate data.
Our services include:
Hunter Environmental Consulting can undertake a range of routine and compliance water monitoring services, as well as event and investigative sampling and monitoring.

Water monitoring for properties and contaminants including:
- Heavy metals
- Faecal coliforms
- Blue-Green Algae
Air Quality and Dust Monitoring
Industrial, construction and mining site are all subject to regulatory requirements when it comes to air quality and dust suppression. We can undertake a range of air quality monitoring including emissions monitoring, ambient monitoring and dust/particulates monitoring including particulate matter PM10 and PM2.5.
Air quality monitoring includes:
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
- Carbon Monoxide (CO)
- Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
Airbourne dust monitoring includes:
- Respirable Crystalline Silica Monitoring
- Respirable Coal Dust Monitoring
- General and Respirable Dust Monitoring
- Diesel Particulates
Hunter Environmental Consulting can test noise levels either on-demand, or continuously. Excessive sound can be harmful to human health, and is a particular issue on construction and industrial sites as well as in the entertainment industry.
Using Sound Level Metres (SLMs), testing is often required for:
- Heavy vehicles
- Plant equipment
- Power Equipment
Whether it is mobile or fixed heavy machinery, vibration monitoring can make up an important element of condition monitoring as part of environmental management.
As vibration can have an effect on neighbouring buildings and infrastructure, monitoring and data collection aims to ensure work is undertaken within the necessary vibration limits. Heavy plant equipment such as those used in rock excavation, demolition, piling, compaction and boring can all impact near-by masonry.
Our team can undertake initial risk assessments as well as the development of a vibration monitoring plan and data collection.
