Environmental Monitoring

VCS has extensive experience in monitoring a large range of activities on the West Coast. These include coal and gold mines, dairy farms, subdivisions, land development, forestry and a lot more.

We know the value of keeping local authorities on your side. To help with this, we can provide you with tools that clearly demonstrate that you are complying with the environmental standards you have been set.

  • Water sampling
  • Macro-invertebrate sampling
  • Baseline surveys
  • Biodiversity surveys


Incident Response

At VCS we know things don’t run smoothly all the time. Unexpected issues can occur on site, causing compliance issues. That’s why we offer our incident response service.

Let us develop remedial and mitigation options that show local authorities you’re taking things seriously. We can also deal with local agencies on site for you.

VCS has experience in managing large-scale incidents, reducing the likelihood of enforcement action from the Council. Let us minimise the risk of notices, fines, and prosecution action that could seriously affect you and your company should the worst occur. It’s just another way we help to reduce the stress in an already stressful situation.
