Water Division

WATER: In the water sector we act in the study, design and construction of drinking water supply, sanitation and wastewater treatment. We are also specialists in design, planning and comprehensive studies of water use in rural and urban farms and hydrogeological studies.

COMPREHENSIVE WATER CYCLE MANAGEMENT

DRINKING WATER SUPPLY:

  • Planning of water supply systems
  • Design of urban supply networks
  • Drinking water plants and regulation tanks
  • Advanced control systems for quality control and consumption

SANIFICATION AND DEPURATION OF SEWAGE WATER:

  • Sanitation systems planning
  • Sewage waters depuration plants
  • On-site sanitation systems
  • Advanced tele-control of sanitation systems and depuration plants management

IRRIGATION SYSTEMS:

Design and management of intensive agricultural irrigation systems:

  • Collection systems (surface and underground waters)
  • Design of primary and secondary networks, storage rafts and auxiliary paths and drains networks
  • Quality control and consumption optimization systems

GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT:

Control and management of aquifers and groundwater, including:

  • Land classification and water characterization
  • Modeling of groundwater systems
  • Aquifers pollution control
  • Design of pollution remediation systems

HYDROGEOLOGY

HYDROGEOLOGICAL STUDIES:

  • Collection of water point inventory
  • Hydrogeological characterization of the medium
  • Piezometry realization
  • Hydrochemistry – sampling and chemical analysis of groundwater
  • Isotopic water analysis
  • Performance of pumping tests and calculation of hydraulic conductivity, transmissivity and aquifers storage coefficients
  • Hydrological and hydro-meteorological balance of aquifers (inputs-outputs)
  • Interpretation of the obtained data
  • Counseling for new studies and corrective measures against various problems

CAPTION HYDRAULICS:

  • Counseling on the construction of Wells and piezometers (drilling methods, material and diameter / thickness of the casing, cementation need and gravel prefilters)

FRESHWATER-SALTWATER RELATIONS:

  • Spatial location of the marine intrusion interface
  • Spatial and temporal variation of the interface of the aquifer exploitation

GROUNDWATER AND CIVIL WORK:

  • Continuous core sample collection at the source of contamination

SAMPLING OF CONTAMINATED SOILS:

  • Exhaustive description of probing in core sample collection of on-site probing inin situ
  • Conservation and laboratory sample transfer protocols
  • Pretreatment of samples in the laboratory

ANALYSIS OF CONTAMINATED SOILS:

  • Contamination source analysis
  • Polluting compounds
  • Pollutants and parameters indicating the physical-chemical conditions of the soil

REMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED SOILS:

  • Experimentation of remediation strategies in the laboratory
  • Pilot tests at the field scale
