Ecological Monitoring of Accidental Water Pollution

This guide is aimed at decision-makers liable to be involved in designing and implementing ecological monitoring programmes in the aftermath of an accidental water pollution incident.

An important component of Cedre’s work involves designing operational guides which present the results of studies, of experimental work and experience feedback from accidents which have occurred.

This guide is aimed at decision-makers liable to be involved in designing and implementing ecological monitoring programmes in the aftermath of an accidental water pollution incident.
