Water4Coasts #1

Researchers are currently investigating how the injection of treated fresh surface water into the groundwater reservoir can protect valuable water resoures in coastal zones and prevent salt water intrusion into groundwater used for drinking water. Follow the researchers in the joint venture between Denmark, China and Brazil in the work of securing our drinking water in a project funded by the Danish Ministry of Environment, GEUS, the China Geological Survey, and universities in Brazil and China.
