Subsurface Water Solutions

Subsurface Water Solutions (SWS) provide innovative, practical concepts for advanced freshwater management, with the common objective of protecting, enlarging and sustainably utilizing fresh groundwater resources.

SWS build on experiences with Managed Aquifer Recharge and Aquifer Storage and Recovery, but their applicability is much wider due to innovations in water well designs and groundwater modeling and management.

Examples include Freshkeeper to stop and reverse salinisation of aquifers and water wells by intercepting intruding brackish groundwater and ASR Coastal to store freshwater, such as harvested rainwater or reuse water in brackish aquifers and reclaim it unmixed for irrigation purposes. SWS introduce a new thinking of water management and provide practical answers for freshwater challenges faced by farmers, utilities, industry and cities.
