DESCRIPTION
  • The application of a MAR scheme in the Pwales aquifer system is the first case of the application of MAR techniques on a groundwater body scale in the Maltese Islands. The proposal might therefore generate perceptions/negative reactions from existing groundwater

  • users in the groundwater body, who might fear that the scheme will negatively affect groundwater quality/yields from their wells. Any issues in this regard should be highlighted by the results of preparatory Action A.4 on the stakeholder assessment and perception survey.

EXPECTED RESULTS
  • The main expected results under this action are increased understanding of the hydro-geological characteristics of

  • the Pwales groundwater body and improved quantitative and qualitative status conditions in the Pwales groundwater body.

Take a look at the Deliverables for this action.
