Abstract

An advanced monitoring system for the management and protection of groundwater resources M. Battaglia/ G. Ventura/ P. Bartalucci/ A. Cioli/ D. Morelli& o TecnoIdroMeteo, via dei Castelli Romani 15/A, 1-00040 Pomezia, Roma, Italy * Publiser, Via Garigliano 1, 1-50053 Empoli, FI, Italy ABSTRACT In this paper, we describe a new monitoring system designed to support control and management of public drinking-water supply areas. It performs automated measurements of groundwater physical parameters and well discharges and automated analyses to control water quality. The system is able to provide an early warning of pollution events and to simulate contaminants transport. Field data are transmitted to the system control unit, located in the water authority building. Management strategies and remedial alternatives maybe evaluated through the numerical models of groundwater flow and solute transport implemented in the control unit. At present time, a prototype of this system is
