By spring 2024, the State Environmental Service, with the support of the Norway grants, will improve the pollution management system in Latvia by developing the functionality of the existing polluted site register, transforming it into a digital pollution management system (registration, monitoring, remediation management, communication between involved parties) and ensuring the integration of the system with data from other national information systems.
Pre-defined project “Digital transformation of the contaminated site management model” will be implemented in cooperation with partner – State limited Liability Company “Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center”, which has so far done the registered the contaminated sites and circulated information. The aim of the project is to create a contaminated sites management information system, which will replace the current registration and circulation of contaminated sites in the form of documents with a comprehensive digitized management model for the submission, verification and acceptance of contaminated sites information and data.
Within the project also plans to co-operate and exchange experiences with Norwegian authorities on the management of contaminated sites, the principles of operation of the management model and register, the benefits and capabilities of the system, guidelines and methodologies developed to take over Norway’s successful experience in developing and managing a digital register of contaminated sites.
The pre-defined project is implemented through the Norway Grants 2014-2021 Programme “Climate Change Mitigation, Adaptation and Environment”. On April 8, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development signed a project implementation agreement in the amount of 1.1 million euros with the State Environmental Service, which will promote high-quality inventory of polluted sites in Latvia, their further research and progress for remediation.
