Development of a European approach for MAR authorization

D12.1 Decision Trees for MAR Impact Evaluation

This report includes the results of an comprehensive bibliographic compilation of trace organic removal rates in different Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) sites. The elimination of emerging pollutants is classified and evaluated based on previously selected key parameters to identify the optimum design and operation of infiltration facilities in terms of water quality impacts. The aim is to provide guidance to the authorities and water suppliers to evaluate the trace organic removal in an existing or a new designed MAR facilities.

WP1.2 Development of a European approach for MAR authorization

The objectives of this work package are:

  • To develop European approaches for MAR authorization with a special focus on emerging pollutants and evaluation of its impact at existing sites
  • To develop a tool box to support operators and authorities in creating an adapted approach and operation for new MAR systems that will comply with the European Water Directives while minimizing energy consumption and costs

The following tasks (with deliverables and milestones) are planned:
