Environmental Monitoring

Protecting human health, protecting a client from potential future liability, or providing compliance with a Solid Waste Order, Land Use Permit, or Waste Discharge License, are the main reasons environmental monitoring is performed. Often, the protected resource being monitored is ground or surface water, air, or soil.

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection (MDEP) requires certain facilities monitor the impact that their facility has on the environment. These facilities include, but are not limited to, landfills, spray irrigation sites, wood chip storage facilities, power plants, wood processing mills, and biomass processing facilities. Haley Ward staff is responsible for all client contact, interactions with State and/or Federal officials, overview and scheduling of environmental monitoring field personnel, review and reporting of data and electronic data management. This also includes managing and reporting of data via the Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) format.

Haley Ward currently offers the following environmental monitoring and sampling programs:

  • Groundwater Monitoring
  • Storm Water Monitoring
  • Soil Monitoring
  • Wastewater Monitoring
  • Indoor Air Quality Monitoring

We currently conduct Environmental Monitoring at over 30 active and closed landfill sites in the State of Maine. In addition, we are responsible for permitting, compliance monitoring, and State and Federal reporting for numerous industrial sites.
