Freshwater supply is an ever increasing challenge in coastal areas and delta cities. Demand is high while resources are limited. Securing freshwater for drinking water, industry and agriculture requires innovative thinking in the management of water resources. SALutions does just that: opening up the underground to solve water challenges worldwide.
Opening up the underground…
SALutions capitalizes upon 65 years of subsurface water storage and treatment experience that has successfully secured water supply in Dutch urban coastal regions, adding new features to make these concepts applicable in saline (groundwater) environments at various scales, for industry, cities, drinking water supply and agriculture.
SALutions builds on recent developments in groundwater modeling, water-well design, configuration and management, allowing for maximum control over underground water resources. This increases the solution’s applicability in coastal areas in which groundwater management is a severe challenge because of the presence of saline and brackish groundwater.
…solving water challenges worldwide
These innovations allow for a range of new applications and solutions in water resources management, including efficient freshwater storage and recovery, mitigation of salinization of aquifers, enabling water reuse, and improved storm water management. These subsurface water solutions have a global potential and are being rapidly implemented in the Netherlands, by greenhouse farmers, drinking water companies and cities. SALutions opens up the underground to help solve major water challenges in coastal areas and cities worldwide.
