EPA installs long-term sampling points in AA.Thoddoo

EPA has installed permanent sampling points for long-term groundwater quality monitoring in AA.Thoddoo with the assistance of Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) Integrated water resource management (IWRM) project in the island.

Thoddoo, an island community well-known for agriculture, is highly dependent on scarce fresh water resources for farming, which accounts for a major part of their livelihood. The 8 long-term sampling points will enable us to monitor the quality of groundwater in the island over a long period of time and identify the changes and trends in the quality of the water.
