Groundwater management – Counteracting salinisation
Most of the water in the world is saline. And unfortunately, saltwater is not suitable for many of our purposes. As a raw material for drinking water, for instance, it is extremely unsuitable. Due, among other things, to rising sea levels, saltwater travels ever further inland, also underground. This means it is getting increasingly close to freshwater supplies in many places. Often a most undesirable situation.
The HDDW is the solution
By installing an HDDW at a right angle to the flow of saltwater, the salinisation of freshwater supplies can be counteracted. The extraction of saltwater or the infiltration of freshwater at high capacities prevents the mixing with fresh water, or even pushes back the saltwater.
