Inven­tory, assess­ment and reme­di­a­tion of anthro­pogenic sources of pol­lu­tion in the Lower Danube Region of Ukraine, Romania

The project “Inven­tory, assess­ment and reme­di­a­tion of anthro­pogenic sources of pol­lu­tion in the Lower Danube Region of Ukraine, Roma­nia” (MIS ETC 995) financed by the Joint Oper­a­tional Pro­gramme Romania-​Ukraine-​Republic of Moldova 20072013, will lay the basis for cross-​border coop­er­a­tion in the Lower Danube region for iden­ti­fy­ing the sig­nif­i­cant land-​based sources of pol­lu­tion, improved mon­i­tor­ing of them, shar­ing infor­ma­tion about them, and devel­op­ing a strat­egy for reduc­ing or elim­i­nat­ing their impacts. As the three coun­tries con­cerned share the Danube River as a sin­gle hydro­log­i­cal unit, pol­lu­tion in one part can quickly impact oth­ers, so it is in the inter­est of all part­ners to coop­er­ate closely in this project.

Dur­ing the course of the project num­ber of inves­ti­ga­tions involv­ing 3 coun­tries con­cern­ing the sources of soil and water pol­lu­tion (includ­ing haz­ardous waste stor­age sites) in the Lower Danube region will be con­ducted, a risk assess­ment of these sources, and a cross-​border strat­egy for deal­ing with poten­tial risks and emer­gen­cies from the pol­lu­tion sources will be identified.

The spe­cific project objec­tives are:

  • To improve knowl­edge of the cur­rent state of chem­i­cal dumps and waste­water dis­charges in the Lower Danube region and estab­lish pri­or­i­ties on how to reduce or elim­i­nate them;
  • To reduce pol­lu­tion of the Danube from waste­water dis­charges; and
  • To increase pub­lic aware­ness about sources of soil and water pollution

The regional project is struc­tured within 4 components:

  1. Inven­tory and assess­ment of sources of pol­lu­tion affect­ing land and waters
  2. Waste­water treat­ment infrastructure
  3. Long term mon­i­tor­ing and risk assess­ment of pol­lu­tion sources
  4. Pub­lic Infor­ma­tion Ser­vice on Pol­lu­tion Sources
