The reason for conducting a desktop study into the possible presence of remnants of war for the entire municipality of Maastricht comes from knowing that several occurred acts of war during World War II in the municipality took place.

According the Netherlands UXO act WSCS-OCE we must consult at least the mandatory values shown in the table below. We consulted also additional sources.
