Discrete water samplers; spectrophotometers


River Supsa and the sea area adjacent to the river delta are located in the limits of the zone subjected to the impact from oil pipeline and oil terminal. Operation of terminal is related to a range of various factors affecting environment. In compliance with the program S-01-GPC-PWR-00424 SRF Gamma carries out monitoring of coastal strip and the water area. Objective of performed monitoring is to study of level of chemical pollution of the river and the sea area. The following parameters are controlled: water samples (both river and sea water): pH, electric conductivity (k), total suspended solids (TSS), permanganate oxidability, dissolved oxygen, chemical and biological oxygen demand (COD, BOD5), ammonium (NH4), Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, Cd, Pd, Cr, Ni, As, Se, total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH), aromatic hydrocarbons: benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylole. In bottom sediments: metals (Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cr, Ni), total organic matters (TOM), TPH, aromatic petroleum hydrocarbons, grain size.
