UNDP – GEF Danube Regional Project Proposal for a Pilot Project on Actual Risk Assessment of ARS - Annex 10
Since the two accidents occurred at mining installations in Baia Mare and Baia Borsa in January and February 2000 basin inventory of potential accidental risk spots were carried out on behalf of the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR). Objective of this inventory was the Identification and preliminary ranking of potential accidental risk spots based on estimated water risk equivalents (WRC 3-equivalents) and calculated water risk index. About 650 risk spots were recorded and 620 were evaluated. As a result it could be identified a hazardous equivalent of about 6,6 Mio tons in the Danube catchment area. Emphasis was to point out the potential danger and not the actual danger.
