The overall aim of the ScorePP project is to develop comprehensive and appropriate source
control strategies that authorities, cities, water utilities and the chemical industry can employ
to reduce emissions of priority pollutants (PPs) from urban areas into the receiving water
environment. Focus is on the 33 priority and priority hazardous substances and substance
groups identified in the European Water Framework Directive. However, this list may be
expanded to include emerging pollutants or reduced if appropriate model compounds can be
identified. The initial work focuses on 67 substances, including substances identified in the
proposed European environmental quality standard (EQS) directive as well as the defined
example compounds and several organometallic derivatives. Information on inherent
properties, environmental presence and fate, and legislative issues is made available in open
database format, and a data management system combining chemical identification (CAS#),
NACE economic activity classifications and NOSE-P emission source classifications has been
developed as a basis for spatial characterisation of PP sources using GIS. Further work will
focus on dynamic urban scale source-flux models, identifying emission patterns and
optimising monitoring programmes in case studies and multi-criteria comparison of source
control versus end-of-pipe mitigation options in relation to their economic, social and
environmental impacts.
