Delcevo Water Supply Project
As a result of climate change, many small and medium-sized streams run dry more frequently and for longer periods of time. Working in the framework of a federal pilot project, we examined how the water that is available during periods of higher flow can be stored as groundwater resulting in a return to surface water during dry spells. The aim is to safeguard aquatic habitats and maintain water exploitation for human use. We tested our findings in a case study that involved identifying suitable locations for groundwater recharge.
