Project Road Runoff Pollution Management and Mitigation of Environmental Risks (PROPER)

A conference of european directors of roads (CEDR) project

Project summary

In this project we collect, combine, and analyse knowledge of the characteristics of road runoff pollution (composition, quantity) being discharged from roads is crucial for the evaluation of its potential impacts on water bodies and related ecosystems, and to inform decisions on the need to construct treatment systems for impacts mitigation.

 

A glossary of terms with accompanying definitions is now available for download <link>.

Work packages

The work programme is organised into 6 major WPs. WPs 1-4 correspond closely with the scientific objectives and outputs stated in the call, WP5 focuses on ensuring maximum impact is achieved through the implementation of a robust dissemination strategy with WP6 outlining the project management activities which underpin successful project completion.

Prediction of pollutant loads and concentrations in road runoff.

Sustainable assessment of measures and treatment systems for road runoffs during construction work

Assessing the vulnerability of European surface and ground water bodies to road runoff during the building and operating of roads

Dissemination and Impact

Sustainable assessment of measures and treatment systems for road runoffs
