SULPHUR DIOXIDE MEASUREMENTS IN SOUTH DURBAN: THE CULMINATION OF 8 YEARS OF MONITORING
The South Durban industrial basin comprises residential areas in close proximity to industry. The South Durban Sulphur Dioxide Management System was formed in 1994 in response to concerns regarding SO2 concentrations in the area. ASteering Committee, consisting of representatives from the national and local authorities, industry and the local community, was formed to monitor ambient SO2 concentrations to thereby facilitate informed decision-making on management strategies for industrial pollution control in the South Durban region. ECOSERV (Pty) Ltd were appointed as project managers in November 1995 to oversee:
• the effective storage of the data collected by the system;
• day-to-day maintenance of the extensive and varied equipment comprising the system; and
• regular reporting and analysis of the data.
