Contaminated sites

The metal goods factory Kromag has been operating a site in Enzesfeld since 1863, where contamination from heavy metals, mineral oil and tar oil hydrocarbons is present almost everywhere. Some of the contamination is of high intensity, but mostly limited to thin subsurface areas. Except in the backfilling area of ​​a former gravel pit in the southwest of the site, where the subsoil is heavily contaminated to the extent of approx. 5,000-7,000 m³ with tar oil hydrocarbons and poses a considerable risk to the environment, the effects of the pollution on the groundwater quality are otherwise very low.


In addition to the bus connections to Baden and Wiener Neustadt, there is a Leobersdorfer Bahn train station .
