Environmental monitoring can benefit aggregate sites in a number of ways:
> Meeting the requirements of your Environmental Permit or the Mining Waste Directive
> Increase safety by providing clear information on adverse weather conditions
> Aid in management decisions on activities such as blasting with current wind direction and speed information
> Historical data available for planning permissions required in the future
> Calibrated equipment and data can be used in case of complaints or civil suits.
Rainfall can erode fine material and similarly high wind can transport and deposit dust articles over great distances. Alerts to such conditions can be sent via text or email ensuring all necessary precautions are taken, but only when required.
