To increase this focus RIVM has proposed a generic framework for a groundwater protection policy that can be elaborated for each site in an area dossier. This dossier contains all relevant information on what measures can be developed on the basis of the desired effects. In the effort to achieve more uniformity and effectiveness in the Dutch groundwater protection policy, the Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (VROM) is planning to derive a guidance document on groundwater protection. On commission of VROM, RIVM has elaborated several components to be used in describing policy, such as the risks of contamination with pathogens, the use of pesticides, the use of energy storage systems and actions on old contaminations. Additionally, RIVM has charted the legal demands set down by the new Water Framework Directive for the protection of industrial (private) abstractions for human consumption, such as the production of soda.
