Abstract

The CAMI project (Aquifer characterisation with Integrated Methodologies), funded by the European Union under the LIFE programme, contributes to the implementation of the 2000/60/EC Directive and any subsequent amendments, developing and testing an integrated set of methods for the definition and characterisation of river basin districts, analysis of the environmental impact of human activities on water resources and evaluation of the sustainability of their exploitation. The CAMI project has allowed the development of an integrated package based on geophysical and geochemical surveys and monitoring of the water basin, in the foothill areas of western Friuli-Venezia Giulia and the eastern Veneto region delimited by the Tagliamento, Meduna-Cellina and Livenza rivers.Through the CAMI project, it has been possible to apply different methodologies and to develop innovative and multi-disciplinary monitoring (geophysical, geochemical and hydrogeological) for the protection and enhancement of water resources at the level of the river basin, under Directive 2000/60/EC. All the stakeholders can take advantage of both the results of the CAMI project as well as the technological and methodological innovations for the enhancement, monitoring and management of water resources of the subsoil. An important outcome of the project with respect to Directive 2000/60/EC involved the possibility to rapidly characterise the groundwater resources at a low cost. In addition, the proposed and adopted methodologies can be applied to territories in which data from direct explorations (wells) is lacking; scarce information on the subsoil can be effectively complemented with geophysical investigations at a low cost and with no impact on the aquifers, in order to characterise potential deep water bodies. Minimizing direct investigations (wells) limits the possibility that pollutants will migrate from bodies of surface water towards deeper sources, as it is well known that wells may become avenues of contact between bodies of surface water and the underground.
