Public private partnership for research into optimum water management

WaterSense is about optimum water use for water supply and drought prevention in rural areas.
A comprehensive and generic Decision Support System (DSS) has been developed for the management of water quantity and water quality, using hydrodynamic, hydrologic and unsaturated zone models. The system is used for detailed analysis of soil-water interactions and operational water management.

Our activities

HydroLogic developed in this project several real-life prototypes:
  • Web-services for making the real-time information of soil-moisture and other sensors accessible.
  • Real-time running Simgro model of soil moisture, run-off and surface-soil interactions for the entire area, zooming in on test plots using subgridding approaches.
  • Portlets of monitoring and model information based on GIS and time series in iGoogle open framework for sharing information with stakeholders and the public.

The consortium

The three-years research project was carried out in public-private partnership (PPP) cooperation with the Drenthe Public Water Supply, the Hunze & Aa's Water Board, Dacom Plant Service, Dynamic Systems Intelligence (DySI), Wageningen University and Research Centre - Applied Plant Research (PPO), Wetsus Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Water Technology, and the Province of Drenthe.
