The Odra (Oder) River flows from the Czech Republic through Poland to the Baltic Sea. Surface water as well as groundwater in the Odra River Basin is heavily polluted, especially in the Ostrava industrial region and its surroundings. The high level of pollution causes considerable impacts on human health and ecology. There is a definite need to develop sound abatement strategies to achieve long term objectives of reducing the deterioration of the environment and to restore the ecological balance in the surface water. This poster presents several related studies and focuses on the Czech-Norwegian one - “Abatement Strategies in the Odra River Basin”.
