Environmental Impact Assessment

Within the DEEPWATER-CE project’s work package T3, an activity A.T3.7 “Preliminary environmental impact assessment of the MAR on decreasing water resources and ecosystems”, is envisaged. The main subject of this activity is to assess the effects of the potential implementation of Managed Aquifer Recharge technology (MAR) within the designated pilot areas across CE  in Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Croatia.

The question was:  How the implementation of the MAR scheme in chosen pilot areas affects environmental components such as climate, geology, soil, landscape, cultural heritage, biodiversity, ecological network, groundwater and surface water, and ultimately human population as an indispensable part of the whole environment.

We have provided a detailed summary of our research and conclusions in this report.

We encourage you to read the results!
