soil conservation Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Soil is an indispensable livelihood for nature and society, its development and sustainable usability. Soil is not reproundable and has limited resilience. Once damaged soil renews and recovers - if at all - very slowly. Threatening hazards can arise from the creeping accumulation of environmentally hazardous substances in the soil. In addition to water and air, the protection of the soil as another object of environmental protection has been legally established. In all cases on the ground, the precautionary principle of economical and gentle use of land must be observed in order to maintain the natural soil functions to a sufficient degree. Harmful soil changes or contaminated sites must be rehabilitated. At the same time, the variety of uses for future generations can be preserved.
