This report outlines the development of a risk assessment geographic information system (GIS) for Central Europe carried out as part of a project to assess and develop remediation technologies to mitigate high concentrations of fluoride (F) in drinking water in Ukraine, Moldova, Hungary and Slovakia: INCO-COPERNICUS IC15-CT98-0139 ‘Water Quality Improvement Through Fluoride Reduction in Groundwater of Central Europe’. The primary aim of the project was to develop technologies to remove fluoride from drinking waters. The second aim of the project was to develop a risk assessment GIS to predict areas were high-fluoride waters or fluorosis (fluoride toxicosis) may occur in Central Europe so that remediation technologies can be deployed most effectively. Hydrogeological, geochemical, medical and GIS experts from Ukraine, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia and the UK were involved in the development of the risk assessment GIS between December 1998 – December 2001. In the original project plan, the geographic focus centred on Ukraine, Moldova and Hungary, however, information for Slovakia was included in the project as excellent geochemical data were available for Slovakia and enhanced the overview of fluoride risks in the study region.
