Ground Water Management

Ground Water represents about theĀ  98% of Earth's available freshwater and it is a renewable strategic resource, because of its usually high quality and availability, but it often need a long time to renew itself and it cannot be renewed artificially on a large scale.

For this reason Ground Water Management is essential in order to avoid some side effects as water table drawdowns, wetlands drying, seawater intrusion increase and general deterioration of the resource. Groundwater numericalĀ  flow modelingĀ  is the best available method for solving problems on the availability and quality of groundwater resources because groundwater numerical flow models are the more suitable tools in order to estimate the groundwater volume balance , to understand hydrogeological systems and their evolution in time.
