- Obtain initial data necessary for the physical environment characterization
- Verify the need for a detailed investigation in case of confirmation of contaminants occurrence in concentrations above the applicable quality standards.
- Generate the confirmatory investigation report, which should contain the conceptual model 2 (MCA 2) and the recommendation of the measures to be adopted according to the results obtained.
