Environmental Impact Assessment – EIA
My EIAs will consider impact on all relevant valuable goods of public and private interest, such as the human health, soil, groundwater, surface waters, communal facilities (water works, housing areas, schools etc.) and the unrestricted use of pri-vate property, if not in conflict with public interests. A thorough „source-pathway-receptor approach“ facilities the derivation of sustainable and cost-effective mea-sures to improve the situation.
