Water quality modeling is a relevant issue for industrial, rural, and urban discharges in surface water bodies (river, lake, estuarine, sea, off-shore); an assessment being needed for design, remediation or EIA purposes.
GECOsistema’s catchment modelling provides water quality modelling solutions from the river basin district to the urban catchment to ensure any discharges are compliant with environmental regulations; to identify integrated pollution management solutions and to support the development and implementation of catchment management plans.
We use a comprehensive suite of modelling tools which integrate demand for potable water, its abstraction and how this translates through to point source and diffuse pollution impacts from both urban and non-urban sources to assess environmental impacts in receiving waters.
GECOsistema’s experience in surface water quality and hydraulic modeling is documented by a long list of projects undertaken in several contexts in Italy and other countries. We have tackled problems in riverine, coastal and transition areas.
