  Abstract:  The PHARE 2006/018-147.03.03/04.07 project includes preparing applications to the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for financing three pilot projects to rehabilitate historically contaminated sites. The main purpose of the pre-selection was to identify eligible projects for financing under the Sectoral Operational Programme Environment, Priority Axis 2, Major Intervention Domain 2 (SOP ENV PA2 MIF2), select three beneficiaries for the pilot projects, and prepare funding applications for them. The pre-selection was based on Romania’s National Environmental Protection Agency’s (NEPA) Contaminated Sites Inventory System (CoSIS). The three historically contaminated sites identified and selected are located in Cluj County, Dambovita Count and Prahova County. The Feasibility Study for this the three pilot projecst to be implemented according to FIDIC Yellow Book, in compliance with HG 28/2008 and the ‘Applicant’s Guide’ was prepared. Consortium experts conducted preliminary and detailed investigations (equivalent to Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) as per the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard Practice E 1527-05 respectively (ASTM E1903-97(2002), and internationally accepted procedures for ESA. The three historically contaminated sites identified and selected were impacted by activities from the following industries: chemical, extractive and processing and pesticide. Description of the current conditions, site history and historical activities developed on the site were based on the PHASE I and PHASE II Environmental Site Assessment by ASTM and a preliminary Conceptual Site Model (CSM), prepared to illustrate the principal risk drivers at the contaminated sites. There were identified and confirmed very clear pollutant linkages between the three contaminated sites (sources) via pathways to receptors as any member of the local community and environment. Risks associated with all relevant pollutant linkages were to be appropriately reduced by the most expedient remedial option given the sites’ constraints.

Key words: lindane, rehabilitate historically contaminanted sites, risk assessment, HCH.
