ISMAR8: Managed Aquifer Recharge: Meeting the Water Resource Challenge

First results from the Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) catalogue were presented during the 8th International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge (ISMAR8) in Beijing (China) to the scientific community. Although other databases on MAR sites exist, the catalogue developed in the FP7 project DEMEAU holds the most updated and comprehensive information on European MAR sites up to now.    

The objectives of the European MAR catalogue are:

Catalogue of 286 Managed Aquifer Recharge Sites in Europe

Experts working on Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) as part of the DEMEAU project compiled a catalogue of 286 MAR-sites in Europe. The data will be included in an existing online data portal and serves as a basis for further risk assessment and recommendations concerning the authorization of European MAR sties in line with EU legislation.

D11.1 Development of a Catalogue on European MAR Sites: Documentation

In order to demonstrate the effects of typical existing European MAR systems onto groundwater availability and groundwater quality with specific focus on trace organics, a comprehensive relational database (catalogue) on European MAR systems was created to ensure efficient management of available data. By means of the built-in user forms, queries, and reports, database users are enabled to not only view and enter records but also to quickly process the data to extract needed information.

Extendet Abstract for World Congress of IUVA and IOA in Las Vegas online

Roberta Hofman-Caris, researcher at KWR and involved in the DEMEAU Work Area on Advanced Oxidation Techniques, will give a presentation at the World Congress of the International Ultraviolet Association and the International Ozone Assiciation in Las Vegas, United States. It takes place on September 24th on 10:30 within session 17 ‐ AOP Methods in Drinking Water. The presentation deals with the formation of possibly (genotoxic) by-products in UV and UV/H2O2 processes.

Putting in vitro bioassay results in perspective – a concept for deriving human health based bioassay trigger values

The application of in vitro bioassays receives increasing attention for water quality assessment. A major advantage of bioassays is that they provide an integrated biological response concerning e.g. hormonal activity in environmental waters and (sources of) drinking water. In order to integrate bioassays into legislation and with that into the practice of risk assessment for water supply, adequate limit values are needed.
