Monitoring Sea-water intrusion in coastal aquifers and Testing pilot projects for its mitigation

Acronym: MoST

Program: INTERREG Italy – Croatia 2014. – 2020.

Lead beneficiary: University of Padua

Duration: 01/2019 – 06/2022

Budget: 2.598.608,60 € (DUNEA budget 120.000,00 €)

The main objective of MoST is the monitoring of the seawater intrusion in specific regions of the in northern Adriatic coasts of Italy and Croatia to assess its relevance, and suggest/test appropriate countermeasures. In addition, the project expects to improve the capacity in transnationally tackling saltwater contamination vulnerability and the preservation of strategic fresh water resources in coastal areas. Croatia and Italy are significantly exposed to the penetration of salt water in coastal regions with serious consequences on agricultural activities and tourism, which can turn into quite a problem in a relatively short time.

To solve this problem, the MoST project will evaluate, propose and test appropriate countermeasures through monitoring the penetration of salt water in regions off the Adriatic Sea in Croatia along the lower reaches of the Neretva River in Croatia and the Po River in Italy. Dubrovnik-Neretva County Regional Development Agency - DUNEA participates in the project with partners from Italy: National Research Council, Managing Authority for Land Rehabilitation - Adige Euganeo, Veneto Region and Croatia: Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy, University of Split and Hrvatske vode.
