The need for a groundwater buffer to store excess rain water for later use

The sub surfaces aquifers can act as a buffer capacity for drinking water and irrigation purposes. The aquifers can have a special effect in areas were surface water aquifers are used as storage of water for irrigation purposes. The constructed surface water storage are costly and increases the transpiration especially during summer time.

Groundwater buffer will be investigated in the following pilots: UK-2, BE-1, BE-2, NL-1, NL-3, GE-1, GE-2, GE-4, DK-1, DK-3, DK-4
