Project objectives:
The main objective of the SCOREPP project is to develop comprehensive and appropriate source control strategies that authorities, cities, water utilities 
and chemical industry can employ to reduce emissions of priority pollutants (PPs) from urban areas into the receiving water environment. SCOREPP focuses
on the 33 PPs identified in the Water Framework Directive (WFD), and specifically on the 11 priority hazardous substances. However, this list may be expanded
to include emerging pollutants or reduced if appropriate model compounds can be identified, depending on the local context.
Project Summary:
SCOREPP aims to assess a wider selection of pollutants including all the   
priority pollutants and an additional list of relevant pollutants. This project   
will develop appropriate strategies to reduce emissions from urban areas   
into the receiving waters. The activities include the identification of sources   
in urban areas, identification of measures, assessing their   
cost-effectiveness and validation of the strategies on a number of selected   
case studies. Interaction with relevant stakeholders is also an integral part   
of the project.
