Pollution warning buoys at Hamad, Ruwais ports

Sunday، 18 October 2020 07:14 PM

The Ministry of Municipality and Environment, represented by the Environmental Monitoring and Laboratory Department, supervised the operations of placing four environment monitoring buoys, two in Hamad Port, and two in Ruwais Port, in co-ordination with Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar).
The installation of the buoys is part of the activities for establishing the national network for continuous monitoring and early warning, within the project of preparing and implementing a comprehensive plan for monitoring coastal and marine water quality in the National Strategy 2022.
The continuous environmental monitoring buoys are necessary for any development work near the marine coasts or any work that may affect the marine environment of the country by the environmental sector at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment.
They provide early warning of any pollution or any disruption in the marine environment through real-time and continuous monitoring by the initial indicators and data measured by the devices in the buoys, which would help in making decisions faster and better to respond in the event of any potential pollution.
The Environmental Monitoring and Laboratory Department seeks to cover all coastal areas of the country with the continuous environmental monitoring and the early warning buoy system.
