Ground Water Monitoring In Housing Estate Planning
City: Münster
Field of activity: Precautionary Environmental Protection
Project description:

By considering the complex determinants of local ground water currents, the protection of ground water in the urban development process could be improved. The findings regarding the flow conditions will be integrated into the urban master plan and into the ground water monitoring concept in form of a practical tool. These ground water monitoring will become a routine procedure in detailed lay-out planning.
In the initial phase this instrument was supplemented by soil(protection) aspects to strenghten the intended function as an instrument of planning. In the second phase the instrument was improved by applying it to testing sites. The objective was to support its application in other cities and towns.
Current status: The project is terminated. This instrument of planning now is finished for the binding site management and will be comprised in the process of comments during the binding site management.
