There is an increasing use of chemicals in society, and a large part of what we use ultimately ends up in the natural environment. Even though many chemicals are assessed for risk or hazard, concentrations in the environment sometimes reach levels where plants and animals are affected. Chemical measurement in the environment provides information about the concentrations of different chemicals. EnviroPlanning provides expertise in setting up monitoring programmes as well as taking the samples and ordering the appropriate analyses. The analyses are performed by certified laboratories.
