Main Objectives

The main objective of the FRESH4Cs project is to provide year-long sustainable fresh water supply for the different water users in coastal lowlands, as an alternative to using overexploited deeper aquifers or long distance water supply through pipelines.

The alternative water resources considered focus on storing and using surplus fresh water that is now drained to the sea during periods of water abundancy, and on using treated (domestic) waste water that is also drained towards the sea. By starting five innovative demo sitesand combine these with a roadmap for the non-technological barriers, the project expects that water management in the coastal lowlands of the 2seas region will increasingly take up the demo technologies, reducing on the long term the pressure on non-sustainable water resources.
