Water is essential for human life and its protection and sustainable exploitation are crucial tasks. Specifically, it is necessary to identify the possible water bodies that could be exploited and, according to water demand needs, to define strategies that preserve the water resource from depletion and pollution and that are environmentally sustainable. The aim of this work is to present an architecture of a decision support system for groundwater supply and quality planning and management, able to integrate physical/chemical models (that take into account phenomena typical of agricultural, saltwater intrusion, and mountain aquifers) and decision models (both for long term planning and short term management problems).
Date of Conference: 30 Aug.-3 Sept. 2004
