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.
From January until May 2018, adelphi is conducting events and workshops in Brazil, China, Cyprus, Mexico and Vietnam to develop Subsurface Water Solutions adapted to the specific local requirements such as coastal saline water intrusion in overexploited aquifers.
The city of Rotterdam is facing large water management challenges in the next decades. The contribution of ASR-Coastal to face some of these issues is explored in 2018.
GEOSERVICE has started in parallel one additional survey with GPR to allocate and exclude almost all basin areas.
The purpose of the Schinias pilot is to create one 3d model of the subsurface layers.
Koen Zuurbier (KWR) obtained his doctoral degree after studying SWS in the Netherlands
The first stakeholder meetings took place in which the stakeholders indicated problems with excess surface water in the area.
Field work at drinking water wells of Marielyst Waterworks, Falster, Denmark
A scientific analysis of the potential of the techniques developed at the Subsol reference sites has been published in the peer-reviewed journal 'Water Resources Management'
In collaboration with universities and companies in Korea, KIST started a unique project with focuses on water quality issues related to geochemical reactions and the high resolution density-driven flow model coupled with reactive transport.
Geophysical measurements were executed at the field sites in Dinteloord, Westland, Nootdorp, and Ovezande in order to record the realized freshwater build-up.
After around 3 months of construction, the ASR-coastal system at Dinteloord (WP2.3) was ready for a first test cycle. With this, the first SUBSOL replication site comes within operation around six months after the start of the project.
The first field campaign, visiting the ASR-coastal sites and the Freshmaker was held from November 10 till November 13.
