COASTAR® in The Netherlands COastal Aquifer STorage And Recovery
Use of subsurface solutions for a robust water supply and drought control by i) closing the water gap between water supply and demand in space and time and ii) prevent salinization of ground/surface water by using brackish groundwater for fresh water production.
Where can COASTAR® be applied?
COASTAR aims for large-scale use of the subsurface to store freshwater for industrial, domestic and agricultural use, including using brackish water for freshwater production. Benefits can be achieved by combining water supply with other functions, such as preventing land subsidence and flooding or strengthening coastal defences.
