Action C.6: Demonstration Site for the application of New Water Resources – Gozo
This action will serve to demonstrate the good, safe and reliable use of New Water, to promote it as an important part of Gozo’s sustainability strategy and effectively demonstrate to direct and indirect users the safe use of treated water in the agricultural sector. This will be done through the development of a Demonstration Centre on the application of New Water resources. The Demonstration Centre will include an advanced irrigation and fertigation system capable of supplying different water resources to different crop typologies. The trials and tests conducted will help establish a link between the use of borehole water and new water in the agricultural sector. In particular, the study is expected to show that the use of New Water is a safe and reliable alternative to borehole water when used for irrigation purposes.
