Exploring and planning groundwater resources

About 5% of the drinking water for the Barcelona district comes from groundwater resources. In some areas significant amounts of water are pumped up for industrial and agricultural purposes. This is for example the case in the largest internal catchment of Catalonia that belongs to the fully reservoir-controlled Llobregat river. Currently I’m working on a groundwater management plan for the Catalonian Water Agency of a highly industrialized area in this catchment with increasing future demands. The main purpose of this plan is to provide a planning and regulatory framework that aims to ensure the allocation and use of the available groundwater resources.
