Description:
Paul Harold (PHE) presented two of the outputs of HazRunoff project:

The hazard prioritisation framework is used to identify key pollutants associated to past and present chemical hazards associated with coastal industrial infrastructure following events such as flooding and coastal erosion.

Besides, a Water Rapid Assessment Tool (Water RAT) was designed for use in both alerting and response phases of by assessing data on key pollutants against health and environmental standards.

The ARDITI research program to evaluate marine debris as a possible vector for introduction of NIS to Madeira Island (NE Atlantic) by engaging and establishing a cooperation protocol with stakeholders (e.g. fishermen, dive operators and whale and bird watching companies).

HazRunoff project was present in the framework of the “42nd AMOP” Technical Seminar on Environmental Contamination and Response, organised by Environment Canada in Halifax, 4th – 6th June.
