A Receiving Environment Monitoring Program (REMP) may be required for an activity that releases contaminants to waters. The aim of a REMP is to monitor and assess the potential impacts of contaminants releases to the environment. A REMP will help evaluate whether the conditions on the licence are effectively maintaining or protecting environment values over time.

The document, which is largely of a technical nature, provides guidance for implementing a REMP where a proponent is required to do so by the administering authority.

The guideline will be subject to review and improvement to ensure it appropriately addresses Industry needs.

Noise Measurement Manual—EM1107 (PDF, 559.4KB)

Noise monitoring is undertaken by the Queensland Government for a variety of reasons; including the provision of information to government for policy and investment decision-making, to underpin environment management decisions by government and industry, and to assess impacts on the community and environment.

This manual explains how to:

  • Plan a noise measurement
  • Take on-site source and background noise measurements
  • Determine component levels by removing ambient noise
  • Make adjustments to account for tonal and impulsive characteristics
  • Report noise measurements.

The Noise Measurement Manual facilitates consistency and reliability of noise measurement.
