Karlovy Vary Doing Away with the Legacy of Coal Gas Production
Summary: Erstwhile town gas production by the former state-owned company has left extensive ecological burden on the Karlovy Vary site. When privatising state-owned assets, the Government committed to pay for the environmental obligations that had originated before the privatisation. In 2017, after many years of project preparations, the remediation was started. The contracting authority is the Czech Ministry of Finance. This contribution describes the work carried out in the unsaturated zone to date and the preparatory work for groundwater remediation. The remediation work is planned for seven years.
