Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Department of Energy and Climate Change,

Please can you provide me with information on what are the safety guidelines, standards, regulations, limits, scales or levels the DECC uses for deeming what is normal levels and what is dangerous when testing for all kinds of chemicals or contaminants in the environment etc.

I require specific information, like any charts, tables or guidelines you may use to judge what level of chemicals, contaminants should normally be present in ATMOSPHERE, WATER I.E RAIN PRECIPITATION, LAKES, PONDS RIVERS ETC and SOIL. I need to know what are the DECC recommended or safe levels for the environment and people, and what isn't i.e when would action/intervention be deemed necessary.

If you could please provide this information in an A-Z list of everything you test and monitor for I would be very grateful.

Yours faithfully,

Gary Jones
