Assessing the opportunity to apply as uniform permit conditions as possible to such activities for which no emission levels have been established in BAT conclusions. With respect to emissions and in the monitoring of water bodies, particular attention will also be paid to substances that are harmful or hazardous to the aquatic environment.
Implementation has started. (The implementation of one or more planned elements of the measure is underway.)
Operators prepare reports on emissions and leaching of substances. Based on this information, ELY Centres update the monitoring programme required by the environmental permit. If there is a risk of exceeding the maximum permitted concentrations of harmful substances in water bodies (environmental quality standards, EQS), the emission limits set in the permit will be revised or a mixing zone will be introduced.
