The workshop for competent authorities for water permiting was held on 26th October 2016 at the Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy. Main topics discussed have been manure storage and management, with specific focus on earth-banked lagoons, and monitoring of surface and groundwater. Also a problem of small numbers of water permits issued to farms, which is the precondition for the integrated permit, was also discussed.
In order to provide additional support to Competent Authorities for water permits, study tour to Croatia, Slavonija Region, was organized on 28th November 2016. The IPPC farms, which were visited, have different types of storages of manure, so the participants had opportunity to get familiar with different ways of manure management.
