REMEDIATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL BURDENS
Remediation of the environmental burden means work carried out in the rock environment, groundwater and soil, the aim of which is to eliminate, reduce or constrain pollution to an acceptable level of risk with regard to current and future land use (Section 3 of the Geological Act No. 569/2007 Coll.).
Implementation of the remediation is based on the remediation project, which takes into account the recommendations of the risk analysis as well as feasibility studies in more complex remediation. The remediation targets are set by target values, which are the levels of pollutants in the natural environment that need to be achieved by remediation technologies to reduce the risk of existing contamination to an acceptable level.
The effectiveness of the remediation is evidenced by post-remediation survey or by monitoring selected indicators, the most common groundwater quality.
