Study area

The three test areas of the project are essentially: the Po Delta (in the province of Ferrara), the Upper Friuli Plain (Pordenone), and an area of springs of Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Pordenone) where they will be applied various methods of artificial recharge to facilitate storage in the underground of part of the rains that currently flow out into waterways leading to the sea.
Demonstration activities, which started in January 2012 have already completed the licensing activities and site characterization. The activities initiated with charging at both sites in September 2013 in order to complete the 30 months envisaged by the project work program in the three test areas:
