Shallow Groundwater - Lighthouse for Water Technology

Project Details


The project "Shallow Groundwater" is a part of the Lighthouse for Water Technology, which aims to create a internal hub for innovative, sustainable and efficient water technology solutions.

The project investigates the correlations between the shallow groundwater level and different determining parameters based on existing data, multiple new sensors for monitoring groundwaterlevel, unwanted water in the sewer systems and geophysical mapping of the geology.

The aim is guidance in mapping needs and scenario calculations based on machine learning, which will give us a better understanding of how different initiatives will affect the shallow groundwater and its quality.

Layman's description

A rising groundwater level is posing a threat to constructions in several places in Denmark and internationally. New power-to-x solutions and big industries may have larger water consumptions, which does not necessarily require drinking water quality. This project will contribute to mapping of extraneous (surplus) water, which can be used in these solutions.

In order to obtain the necessary knowledge, sensors that measures the groundwater level are installed with distances of a few hundred meters. The measured groundwater level is compared with measurements of precipitation, temperature and other relevant parameters. By finding the correlation between the aforementioned, we can easilier explain and predict how the groundwater level will fluctuate under different conditions and hence which areas require extra attention.
