• The overall objective of the project is to test, validate and apply the latest methods used at European level on the characteristics of Romania hydrostructures, so maps of vulnerability obtained obtained to form a standardized support necessary to fulfill legislative requirements in the field of water resources protection, domain approached in European programs (COST 65, COST 620) where Romania has not been present until now.
  • Develop maps of vulnerability to different types of aquifers by applying the methodology developed, test and validate it on the pilot areas.
  • Working methodology applied in European countries requires the use of specific parameters monitored with modern equipment, techniques and data storage mapping based on the use of GIS, application of advanced concepts for analysis of groundwater flow and contaminant transport. Evaluation is generally qualitative and there are several methods of determination. New research directions aimed to identifying the needs for development of a dynamic link between groundwater numerical models and methods based on overlapping maps and indexes.
  • In Romania, European legislation was implemented by adapting the WFD and is currently working on adapting groundwater directive. Main method for assessing groundwater vulnerability map is overlap method, not even their usual combination of mathematical modeling method indexes or contaminant transport. Current state of knowledge in the field but not before the Romanian socio-economic development and climate change that is reflected in critical situations in terms of the water reached, both in terms of both quality and quantity.
  • Sustainable management of groundwater resources is one of the key elements to ensure a sustainable development in Romania, both socially and economically.
  • The development of a methodology for determining the vulnerability of aquifers will provide the framework for the development of vulnerability maps for all aquifers in Romania, at a European standardization.
  • Maps and information contained in them will be used by agencies and institutions in water management in order to ensure sustainable development of society.
