Our water resources will only sustain in the long term if we build up our water management. In this context the participants of EM39th experienced two days with the experts of the Institute for Groundwater Management at TU Dresden. To develop our understanding of factors affecting sustainable management of groundwater, we had lectures about the concepts of subsurface properties, well constructions, monitoring wells & groundwater quality sampling and salinity modelling. We also visited the laboratory to support the estimation of geo-hydraulic parameters technically.
Many thanks to Prof. Dr. Rudolf Liedl, JProf. Dr. Marc Walther, Dr.-Ing. Diana Burghardt and Dipl.-Ing. Martin Binder for sharing with us linkages developed within & outside Germany.
