Aquifer recharge in Malta

General
National Id: 
Malta_01
Site name: 
Bulebel Industrial Estate, Malta Mean Sea Level
Summary: 
Aquifer recharge with highly polished treated effluents. With a high population density and almost inexistent surface waters, Malta is in a situation of over abstraction of its groundwater resources and where its total water demand exceeds the sustainable yield of the naturally renewable freshwater resources. Demand comes from the domestic and agricultural sectors alike (the domestic use can even exceed the agricultural use with the arrival of tourists during touristic seasons). From a qualitative point of view, freshwater resources are also under threat resulting from nitrates and salt water intrusions.
