Environmental impacts of the Krasny Bar toxic waste landfill (EnviTox)

Activities

The main objective of the proposed project is to improve the state of the environment in the surrounding area of the Krasny Bor toxic waste landfill.

The implementation of this project allows obtaining objective and unbiased information about the current environmental status of the territory, which was formed over a long period of the landfill operating. Based on the vulnerability and risk analysis, feasible risk management methods for improving the status of the environment will be given.

The project work is conducted within a number of activities that support each other and lead to achievement project goals. Main of them are:

  • - state of the art studies
  • - fieldwork and sampling for environmental impact assessment
  • - analytical research
  • - surface water monitoring
  • - surface water modeling
  • - vulnerability and environmental risk assessment
  • - developing practical recommendations and tools to provide comfortable environment in the surrounding of polygon

The implementation of this project allows obtaining objective and unbiased information about the current environmental status of the territory, which was formed over a long period of the landfill operating. Eventually, when the measures are realized, this will lead to the overall improvement of the environmental status in the area as well as bordering regions such as the Neva river watershed.

Based on the information obtained during the project and taking into account existing best practices already implemented in the Baltic Sea region in environmental contamination and management studies, the project will be able to identify new, innovative solutions to reduce load on the environment and to improve the environmental status in the region.
