Stay up to date with Australia’s water protection and management policies which are regulated by each state’s EPA

Water is a precious and vital resource that supports all life as we know it. From lakes, to groundwater, to stormwater and wastewater, the proper management and monitoring of our water resources is vital to maintain healthy and prosperous communities as well as support many areas of industry from agriculture to mining.

Abiding by the water protection policies and best practice guidelines set out by your local Environment Protection Authority is therefore of fundamental importance to us all.


Air-Met Scientific can provide water monitoring equipment for a wide range of projects and applications, such as the YSI ProDSS Water Quality Meter, and the Seametrics LevelSCOUT and BaroSCOUT smart water sensors. Our experienced sales and rental teams can assist you with product selection and can also offer continual advice, support and product training if required. For more complex long-term projects, we also offer fixed monitoring systems with telemetry options. These can be built to your specifications by our in-house engineering team.
