VUBToday: De Watergroep, KWR and VUB start collaboration project

22% of drinking water produced by De Watergroep is pumped from the Chalk aquifer. To better understand the capacity of the Chalk and the impact of different users, De Watergroep, the Dutch research institute KWR and VUB start a project to contribute to sustainable groundwater exploitation. Two postdoctoral researchers from the research group of prof. Marijke Huysmans from the Department of Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering (HYDR) of VUB will study the capacity of this aquifer - taking all different sources of uncertainty into account - in this three-year project.   read more on VUB Today
