Water treatment plants remove materials and chemicals that harm humans and reintroduce water into the ecosystem safe for humans to use.
Using the correct type, amount, and balance of chemicals in water treatment plants is important to properly treat the water and/or to handle particular substances found in cetain water supplies.
Whatever chemicals are introduced will re-enter the water supply, which is why using the correct amount of chemicals used in the treatment is important to ensure the water is still safe, or else one contaminant is treated only to introduce another. Such chemicals getting into the water supply will also get into other species' habitat and ecosystem.
The soil, water, and air is monitored for pollution coming from the chemical measuring plant. For each of them, there are different ways to monitor them to check for pollution. To monitor all three, a sample must be taken first. To monitor air, the air has to be filtered or mixed with a chemical solution in a tube.
To monitor soil, take samples and run multiple tests to ensure no chemicals from the factory leaked out. Check pH levels in the soil to measure the acidity. To monitor water, take samples and test it for chemicals in contaminated water using indicators to check for certain chemicals.
Reasons for doing so: Chemical manufacturing plants produce several unwanted byproducts. These byprodcts can be present in surrounding areas and pollute them including the air, water, soil, plants, forests, etc.
