Project subpage

Surface water quality has environmental, ecological, public health effects, thus the protection and development of it, is a very important task. Moreover protection and sustaining good quality status of lakes is the most important target of European Water Policy. Pollutants are mostly occurred in ports where presence of artificial impacts are highly intensive, thus this is the site where project is focused on.

The aim of the project is a complex system and a technological description to protect surface water (freshwater lakes) quality in ports. The result has two different parts: one of them is setting up a standard water quality monitoring and a support system for intervention, the second is a technological description for integration of water cleaning systems. Integration of different innovative individual monitoring technologies and water cleaning technologies into cooperative systems which is able to alarm and avoid contaminations is the expectation of the project. The aim of these integrations is to improve and sustain the quality of water in lake ports. The integration of monitoring methods and cleaning technologies will be able to be adapted to the ports specialties. Thus although the project test site is the Lake Balaton in Hungary, but the project owners plan to give recommendations for other lake ports also based on their results. The project owner is the only participant.
