In order to further improve the scientific and information-based level of environmental management in the county, we should effectively use modern and digital means to carry out law enforcement and supervision. In the afternoon of July 17th, Qingtian County Environmental Protection Bureau held a meeting of key enterprises in the county to install automatic supervision and monitoring facilities. Zhejiang Ruipu Machinery Co.,Ltd, Zhejiang Lianqiao Synthetic Leather Co.,Ltd, Zhejiang Zhuoye Energy Equipment Co.,Ltd. and other 11 key pollution units attended the meeting. The meeting mobilized the units through the interpretation of the spirit of relevant documents, laws and regulations, and actively discussed issues concerned.
At present, there are 10 on-line monitoring stations for pollution sources in the county. In regard to the issuance of pollution discharge permits and the national pollution source survey, County Environmental Protection Bureau carried out a comprehensive screening in the administrative region on the enterprises which meet the installation requirements of the automatic supervision and monitoring facilities. Finally, it identified 11 pollution-related units (12 locations) as the targets for installation, and these enterprises should independently select third-party companies to build their stations and purchase equipment to carry out installation and networking. After the completion of the construction, there will be 22 online monitoring sites for pollution sources in the county, marking an increase of 120 %. It is a huge step of the county in the construction of‘Wise Environmental Protection’. The site distribution is mainly extended from Wenxi to industrial towns such as Chuanliao and Dongyuan, thus achieving a more comprehensive coverage of automatic monitoring stations.
In the first half of 2018, the Qingtian County Environment Protection Bureau acted frequently in the work of "Intelligent Environment Protection", and the installation and propulsion of automatic monitoring and control facilities were only one of the epitomes. In the first half of the year, 196 video monitoring installation points in the whole county were determined through investigation, including the pollution production process, pollution collection link, pollution discharge port of the essential enterprises and institutions, and the river discharge ports of the municipal pipe network. The current work is installing facilities, putting them in the network and building video command system. At the appointed time, information from the automatic monitoring stations all over the county, such as the monitoring data, video surveillance information, pollution source location distribution, daily law enforcement dynamic and monitoring information will be visualized in the ‘Environment Protection Map’. In order to enhance the ability to investigate the law enforcement, the County Environment Protection Bureau equipped two unmanned aerial vehicles for the first line law enforcement personnel. At the same time, the pipe robots from the third side were introduced to help the process of investigation of the underground pipe network. This ‘Ground-Air Collocation’ model has completed many ‘impossible tasks’.
The installation of automatic monitoring facilities for key enterprises in the county is another major step after the bureau's "Three Steps for Intelligent Environment Protection’ strategy, after the installation of video monitors and the construction of the "Environmental Protection Map" platform. In the next step, the bureau will continue to pay attention to and follow the work of installation and networking of automatic monitoring facilities, and put the work into reality, so as to solve the dilemma between the lack of personnel and the heavy supervision task, by improving the efficiency of law enforcement management with science and technology, as well as improving the effect of environmental protection (Qingtian County Government Office).
