From 13-22 February 2018 Adelphi visited Guadalupe Valley and San Quintín to share knowledge and promote tools created throughout the SUBSOL project as well as to elaborate regional implementation opportunities with local stakeholders.
This report aims to inform the reader about the Subsurface Water Solution concepts presented and discussed in a Public Promotion Event and finalised in a Project Development Workshop in each region Guadalupe valley and San Quintín. These activities were part of the scope of the Mission IV Series in the Guadalupe Valley and San Quintín, Mexico in the SubSol project.
The combination of water reuse and aquifer storage and recovery to enable a robust and high-quality freshwater supply is clearly summarized in a two minutes movie. A must-see.
Drawing on lessons learnt from stakeholder workshops held at the four replication sites in Denmark, The Netherlads, Greece and Mexico, DBT has published a step-by-step guide to stakeholder engagement to support pilot projects, decision making and implementation in relation to Subsurface Water Solutions.
