The idea of evaluating stocks and forms of metals by coupling geochemical with geophysical and mineralogical methods is innovative (environmental service 1). The idea of providing environmental risk assessment services taking into account the distribution in space of the contamination hot-spots at a resolution relevant for all stakeholders downstream (S2 and S3) is original. Usually a continuous decrease of contamination with distance is assumed, which is true only as a general trend of the distribution of average concentrations of contaminants with the distance from the pollution source. The idea of coupling in eco-remediation native plants with native microorganisms and fungi inoculum is innovative (each of them have been tried separately, but the inoculation with native bacteria has been applied only up to field plot scale by now). The idea of providing services for the integration of management plans and monitoring systems of stakeholders in contaminated basins (S4 and S5) is innovative (this approach has been used in the implementation of Water Framework Directive with respect to users of groundwater and surface water, and now we transfer the approach to communities of stakeholders related to one another by externalities due to fluxes of toxic elements).
