The long-term objective of the Environmental Chemistry Division is to generate, process and disseminate water and wastewater quality information to end-users. Specific objectives are to:

  • perform quality and quantity assessments of industrial, agricultural and domestic discharges in both urban and rural areas and identify their impact on aquatic ecosystems;
  • collect, process and disseminate comprehensive high quality and reliable environmental data on surface and groundwater with regard to their chemical constituents; and
  • monitor pollution in coastal waters and lagoons in Ghana.
