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:

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.

Aim of the study

First technical meeting on Managed Aquifer Recharge

On 5-6 May 2013, DEMEAU project partners and experts in Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) met in Barcelona to discuss their latest work: a European Catalogue of MAR sites with over 200 identified MAR sites and their characteristics. The meeting helped the further definition case studies and participants took advantage of the synergies between the multidisciplinary team.
