Artificial recharge

  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The AQUOR project was conceived as demonstrative action aimed at facilitating the inversion of the current trend of overexploitation of groundwater resources and increasing aquifer recharging rates in order to rebalance the upper Vicenza plain’s aquifers and foster their sustainable use. The project area has an important underground water heritage, which represents the water supply for a total of 400.000 inhabitants of the provincial territory. Moreover this...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION    Depletion and pollution of surface and underground water resources are becoming increasingly widespread phenomena.  The causes are mainly due to the increase in water consumption and quality deterioration of the water resources, phenomena linked to factors such as changes in the agricultural practices, population growth and climate change. In this context, managing and governing the water resource and its use is one of the main challenges to be...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION Climate change is the survey context of the TRUST project as decisive factor within the surface waters and groundwaters management. In particular TRUST was aimed at quantifying the possible consequences  of climate change on aquifers and identifying adaptation measures through their artificial recharge to mitigate the impacts caused by drought and decreased availability of water resources resulting from climate change. The first project step was the hydrogeological...
