In 1998, a survey and initial assessment (Phase I) of areas suspected of contamination (KVF) on the property was carried out.

In 1998, Phase IIa investigations were also carried out for the suspected sites determined in Phase I. On the basis of these results, a detailed investigation (Phase IIb) was carried out to identify environmentally relevant impacts.

In the course of the subsequent recording of KVF with regard to PFC suspected areas, five rainwater retention basins (RRB I to RRB V) were designated as PFC suspected areas (KVF 03 -KVF 07). Here, water and sediment samples were taken and analyzed for PFC.

HYDRODATA GmbH was commissioned by “Bau und Immobilien Hessen (LBIH), Regionalniederlassung Süd” to carry out the detailed investigation (Phase Iib).
