how subsurface water solutions can help
Active participation of policy makers in water reuse R&D is crucial to accelerate subsurface storage and water reuse in Europe and internationally
The ASR-Coastal set-up has been transferred to the city of Rotterdam by KWR and Codema to combat pluvial flooding and water scarcity.
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.
On 24 February a delegation of NAWAPI visited KWR. On the agenda was the opportunities for European-Vietnamese colloboration and knowledge exchange.
8 and 9 October 2015 was the official start of the European project SubSol at KWR in Nieuwegein.
