Initial inspection and examination of 26 heavily contaminated sites using a
standardised and internationally acknowledged methodology.
Prioritization of measures according to severity and potential danger;
description of contamination (causes; type of hazard; effects on
groundwater and surface water, soil, air and land use; distribution of
emissions; effects of erosion and precipitation etc.).
Based on socio-economic and local political considerations the ten most
