The public health departments which control the water quality and its hygienic status, have noticed a growth in contamination through nitrates and pesticides. The contaminations are mostly found in the top aquifer (shallow depths) and are only a a preliminary sign for a long-term trend also for deeper aquifers. These concern the public water supply.
Objective of this project is to create a concept for both the reduction of contamination and trreatment of the water to ensure long-term water quality. Monitoring shall be optimized and advice for decision support will be given.
The concept will be developed in the 2 000km2 region of Osnabrück which has 11 000 private water wells and in four small villages in the catchment of the Saidenbachtalsperre in Saxony (350 private water wells).
There were two English presentations concerning this project:
