The project aims at drafting guidelines that support CMRC (Città Metropolitana di Roma Capitale) in the identification of a responsible for contamination. Starting from some study cases within the Roma provincial territory, some macro-categories have been defined; sorted by site’s typology (i.e. waste management plants, gas stations, oil pipeline break-ins, illegal waste releese, etc.) or by contamination type (i.e. diffuse pollution, background values, historical contamination, etc.). Guidelines are under implementation based on the results of technical investigations.
At the same time, a collaboration with ARTA Abruzzo has started within this project, aiming at testing a simple, fast and low-cost screening method, namely Phytoscreening, that is to detect COV and chlorates contamination in tree trunks to b related with contamination in soils and groundwater.
