Environmental assessment pollution plume related to groundwater in Ribe, Denmark

From 1956 until 1973, untreated wastewater from a chemical plant was dumped into 6 pits in a plantation in the south-western part of Jutland, Denmark 0.5-1.0 km from the coastline. Today, it is one of the worst pollution scenarios in Denmark with high concentrations of e.g. chlorinated organic solvents.

As an alternative to a costly offshore drilling campaign, a small SkyTEM TDEM survey starting 1.0 km inland and ending 1.0 km offshore was flown in 2006.
