Development of cost-effective methods for minimizing risk from heavy metal pollution in industrial cities: a case study of mercury pollution in pavlodar

Objective

The work will investigate environmental management options for remediation/mitigation of pollution by soluble heavy metals in industrial cities. It will develop a methodology for identifying cost-effective pollution management options that take into account both economic realities and the best estimates frisk. It will pay particular attention to establishing cost effective ways of understanding the extent of groundwater pollution and in cost effectively managing risk. In the first instance, the methodology will be developed and tested in abase study at Payload, a heavily industrialised city where there has been catastrophic release of mercury in the industrial zone. The research will make practical, economically feasible recommendations for resolving the Payload crisis and will produce a manual for investigating similar industrial sources of pollution in arid continental climates.
