Surveys of banks and other public areas to support projects related with the further border actions on macro inslands of the Site of National Interest of Porto Marghera

Purpose of the assignment: soil-environmental investigations and monitoring of piezometric levels to support the planning of bordering of macro-islands, carried out by the Venice Water Authority (Magistrato alle acque di Venezia) in the Site of National Interest of Porto Marghera. Client: Venice Water Authority by the concessionaire Consorzio Venezia Nuova. Period: 2010-2011. Funding quota of SELC: € 674,514.00

Dynamics of aquifers connected with the operations in the Site of National Interest of Porto Marghera

Activities performed: strengthening and refinement of the mathematical model of the aquifers in the SIN Porto Marghera to support the design, control and management of back-bordering and the connected civil works. The study is divided into: 1) Sub-line 6.1, Surface hydrographical network (study of exchange processes between groundwater and surface water), 2) Sub-line 6.2, Investigation of abandoned wells (study of potential interference processes between the deep aquifers and the surface water system) 3) Sub-line 6.3, Hydrodynamics survey in the area of partial saturation. Client: Venice Water Authority by the concessionaire Consorzio Venezia Nuova. Period: 2009-2011. Funding quota of SELC: € 334,449.00
