Regulation of industrial discharges to the environment has been increased in the last few decades (Fisher 1994). In the European Union, this is leading to the establishment of Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) as the guiding principle in the authorization of pollutant discharge by industry. As part of this, pollutant discharges have to be monitored to prevent exceedence of the limits set by the licensing authority (Bigg 1994).
