Where it all began
The history of EHS Data’s involvement with Veolia stretches over many years through Leigh Environmental who then became Onyx – today part of Veolia. At the time the company operated a series of landfills in the North and West Midlands of the UK. With an obligation under their licences to manage the environmental impacts at their sites (land, air and water) the volume of monitoring data steadily increased over the years and an efficient method of inputting, collating and retrieving data soon became essential. For these reasons Onyx adopted the predecessor of MonitorPro - Desktop in 1996 and have used the system ever since. Onyx found the payback period for the software was only five months.
More recently Veolia Environmental Services UK Ltd have purchased MonitorPro - Desktop for the management of environmental data across twenty sites in the South of England, including landfills and waste transfer stations. The data managed in the system includes leachate and groundwater (a range of variables including depth, ammoniacal nitrogen, Cl, SO4, conductivity, pH, BOD, COD and a range of metals), gas (CO2, CH4, O2 and pressure). MonitorPro - Desktop replaced the use of 643 spreadsheets which were used before and now provides a holistic environment in which to manage and report their data.
