Matrix of risks and remediation measures

Risks and remediation measures at different stages of MAR site development

This report assessses the MAR-associated risks at six MAR sites from which are at different stages of development: three case studies at feasibility and pilot stage and three case studies at operational stage. The risk assessment study was conducted based on recommendations of international guidelines. The report may be used to assist in clarifying which actions or further investigations are required to reduce the uncertainty of risks and, if necessary, to implement remediation measures. In addition, this report intends to show how site-specific hazards have been assessed to varying degrees depending upon the level of risk assessed at each project development stage.

Setup of real-time observation platform

Connection of UIT ́s SENSOweb with INOWAS platform

The present report describes the software infrastructure developed in the SMART-Control project to enable the import of third-party data into the INOWAS platform. Using two different transfer approaches, pre-formatted datasets are either uploaded to a FTP webserver as CSV files or retrieved from public APIs using the open-source monitoring and alerting toolkit Prometheus.

Web-based real-time monitoring and control capabilities

Development and implementation of a web-based tool for the calculation of groundwater hydraulic residence time

This report describes the first part of the SMART-Control web-based tool T1: “Initial risk assessment. Part A. Estimation of groundwater hydraulic residence time”. The tool enables water utilities to estimate the groundwater hydraulic residence time at MAR sites by using temperature measurements in influent and recovered water. The tool was developed as collaboration between project partners KWB (R code development) and TUD (web-based frontend implementation).

Web-based real-time monitoring and control capabilities

Implementation of web-based real-time monitoring tool on INOWAS platform

This report describes the main functionality of the web-based tool T2. Real time monitoring and control. The tool facilitates the operational management of MAR sites by collecting real-time data from the in-situ site-specific observation systems. Besides data collection, pre-processing and visualisation, the real-time monitoring tool is also equipped with basic decision rules and control features to help identify the occurrence of risks at a MAR facility.

Web-based risk assessment tools

Development and implementation of a web-based tool for quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA)

This report describes the main functionalities the SMART-Control web-based tool T1B Quantitative microbial risk assessment. The tool helps to quantify the pathogen occurrence in source water and their removal by various treatment steps at MAR facilities by using a probabilistic approach. The interactive web-based QMRA tool supports the evidence-based risk assessment to minimize water-related infectious diseases.

Web-based real-time modelling

Implementation of the web-based real-time modelling tool on the INOWAS platform

This report describes the main functionality of the web-based tool “Real time modelling”. The real-time modelling tool allows a user to extend an existing numerical groundwater flow model with new sensor data. New stress periods are automatically added to the base model using either constant values or sensor data from the last time step of the base model up until the date, the model instance is created and run. Currently, the calculation process must be initiated manually but new data can be automatically imported from the INOWAS tool “Real-time monitoring”.

Demonstration of the SMART-Control approach at the Ezousa MAR facility, Cyprus

Real-time monitoring, lab analysis of microbial and chemical quality parameters and groundwater model set-up on the INOWAS platform

The report describes the demonstration of the SMART-Control approach and developed tools at Ezousa MAR site. It provides details regarding the installation of the real-time monitoring system, which consists of three sensors that measure three water quality parameters: water level, electrical conductivity and temperature. Supplementary, groundwater is collected from five monitoring wells, which was analyzed in UCY’s lab facilities in order to assess its microbial and chemical status. Furthermore, details regading the development of a groundwater flow model for Ezousa site on the INOWAS platform are provided and preliminary results are shown for different numerical simulation scenarios.
