The scope of this study was the recording of the technical data, the necessary tasks and the required field work to understand the behavior of the carstic system on Titarisios and Pineios Rivers, and the development of a mathematical model for the system. The overall study area included the semi-crystallic limestones in Damasi and Tyrnavos areas and on river Titarisios region, together with the Elassona and Potamia basins, and the river Pineios. The total area of the study was 300 km². This hydrogeological study aimed at: 1) To estimate the quantitative and qualitative water balance of the region under study,2) To inform the sustainable use of surface water and groundwater for irrigation of agricultural land, water supply to settlements and other uses 3) To calculate the available quantities from aquifers throughout the year, without causing adverse impacts on them, 4) To formulate the relationship of surface – groundwater and the most environmental way of exploitation 5) To formulate specific proposals for the enrichment of groundwater aquifers from surface waters.

RFP

The Natural Resource Management (NRM) Project on Kenya had four main components: Water Resource Management and Irrigation, Management of Forest Resources, Livelihood Investment in the Upper Tana Catchment and Management, Monitoring and Evaluation. Each of the three statutory institutions implemented a specific aspect of the whole component. A national project coordination office (NPCO) located in the Ministry of Water and Irrigation was responsible for the overall coordination of the implementation of project activities.The area under study was approximately 10,000 km². Flow and sediment monitoring in about 20 rivers in the catchment was in the scope of the contract with parallel training of the WRMA staff. Bathymetric surveys in 4 reservoirs were contacted (Masinga, Kamburu, Ndakaini and Sasumua) and a soil erosion model for all the catchment was developed and run. The design of a monitoring network for all the catchment was performed both for meteorological, hydro geological and hydrological data. A pre-feasibility study of approximately 100 dual purpose dam locations was conducted and 30 locations were selected for further study.




INSTALLATION OF A MONITORING SYSTEM & EVALUATION OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS OF RIVERS LOUROS & ARACHTHOS AND THE AMVRAKIKOS GOLF, WEST GREECE

The main objective of the assignment was to inerprete and combine aerial photography coverage of the area of the catchments basins of Louros and Arachthos rivers which drain into Amvrakikos Gulf (dating back to 1945) and current high resolution satellite imagery to create a number of thematic maps showing the changes effected over time by urban and agricultural development. Changes over time were mapped for river courses, river beds, wetland areas and riparian areas along the Louros and Arachthos rivers and for the lagoons formed on the northern shores of Amvrakikos Gulf. Historical aerial photographs were scanned and assembled into a seamless mosaic, georeferenced to the current Greek projection system and datum. From this background, important elements of the river environment were digitized (banks, riparian areas, flood plains, etc.) and stored into a GIS system. The same elements were digitized from current high resolution satellite imagery of the area and the two data sets were compared using the GIS. Important metrics such as differences in floodplain areas, riparian extent, lagoon coverage etc. were calculated from superposition of the two different datasets thus quantifying the physical changes in the river environment over time.

RFP

The overall objective of AUTOLEAK was to contribute to the protection of the environment by achieving a more efficient use of water resources. The specific objectives of the project were:
- to enhance the competitiveness of the participating SMEs in reducing the losses in water pipes in urbanised areas;
- to validate the AUTOLEAK technology and aid its penetration in the EU market; and
- to enhance the innovative capacity of water consultants, equipment manufacturer and water utilities.
The AUTOLEAK system, based on proven experience and expertise, integrates widely available monitoring equipment such as flow, pressure and noise logging and well proven software packages, such as mathematical simulation modelling and GIS, with a data management and storage package to allow not just the immediate identification of a leak, but also its position. As such, it represents an innovative solution to a worldwide problem.
