The goal of the proposed system is to protect sensitive areas of the country from hydrocarbon pollution with the use of a global system for mobile communications/general packet radio service (GSM/GPRS) accessed from mobile observation points (MOPs). The primary applications of this system are detection of leaks from an underground or aboveground storage tank (UST/AST), monitoring waste water discharge/ monitoring bilge water, monitoring water quality, monitoring groundwater, monitoring oil-water separators, monitoring storm drain effluents, and static soil gas headspace analysis. The basic version of the system is equipped with: a GPS position locator, a contamination probe sensitive to hydrocarbons, and a GSM/GPRS connection with the central www server
