Environmental pollutants typically enter bodies of water through accidents, improper handling and wastewater discharge. Following two incidents involving the discharge of chemical pollutants into Lake Constance, the Canton of St.Gallen’s Governing Council chose to review the cantonal enforcement in the field of environmental chemicals to prevent future discharges into water bodies more effectively. An internal administrative project aims to show the status quo and determine possible optimization measures. We supported the process as external project managers.
