Sustainable Water Resources Management

The sustainable use of water resources is essential for the peaceful functioning of any society. Through our know-how, we are improving the water supply of arid regions or regions that may be adversely affected by climate change in the future.

Water shortages are intensifying with global warming. This problem is no longer limited to traditionally arid regions. Severe water restrictions are increasingly being imposed in Europe, affecting the quality of life and human activities. Whereas surface water bodies (lakes, rivers) represent only 1% of available fresh water in liquid form in the world, they are used for 70% of our global water consumption.

Groundwater is a highly valuable resource with an extraordinary potential. About 99% of the world’s fresh water in liquid form is groundwater but it only makes for about 30% of the world’s fresh water supply.

Groundwater underpins private drinking water supplies and sustains agriculture, industry and recreation, even in arid regions. Groundwater is also vital to the health of surface water ecosystems, helping to dilute and assimilate contaminants, and mitigating flooding.

Sustainable water management, waste water and ecosystems, through responsible water policies and coordinated actions of public and private stakeholders are essential to ensure safe drinking water and sanitation for all (UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6).

Our specialists understand water policies, water cycles and hydrogeological specificities of the world’s arid regions. We know how to identify suitable sites and extraction systems using remote sensing, geophysical, hydrogeological, geochemical, and exploratory drilling methods. We are also able to carry out projects to recharge aquifers – artificially or naturally –  to provide fresh water supply.

Case studies

Multi-Scale Karstic Reservoir Characterisation

Innovative multi-disciplinary approach (combining bore-hole imagery, core data, 3D seismic and field production) have been applied to better characterize and represent karstic features.
