On 13th July, students of the Environmental Geothecnologies Master of the University of Siena, followed by Dr. Rudy Rossetto, carried out a field  lesson at the demonstration plants in Val di Cornia realized within the LIFE REWAT project.

In particular, the design of the Suvereto Managed Aquifer Recharge plant was presented in detail, with particular reference to the on-site quasi-real time surface and groundwater water monitoring system.


During the lesson, the students performed experimental activities related to surface and groundwater monitoring such as analysis of  the chemical-physical parameters water.


Finally, they visited the river restoration works realized in the river Cornia.


The demonstration schemes are available for guided tours and for experimental lessons - for information please contact

We are happy to announce that within the EU co-financed LIFE REWAT project (www.liferewat.eu), Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna will host in Pisa (Italy) the first edition of the Summer School

Digital water management and water-related agroecosystem services: geostatistics, hydroinformatics and groundwater flow numerical modelling

from September 3rd to 14th 2018.

For further information on the Summer School structure, how to apply and the enrolment fee, please visit: 

Twelve exemptions on lodging and subsistence available.

Deadline for the application: July 17 th 2018 at 12 am (GMT)

The Summer School aims at proposing innovative ideas on water resource management by focusing on the concept of water-related agro-ecosystem services and on nature-based solutions and blue infrastructures. Digital tools (software applications) will constitute the other pillar of the Summer School, aiming at preparing the participants to develop the skills for dealing with the management and analysis of water-related spatial data by using state-of-the-art Information and Communication Technologies.

The Summer School is designed for MSc students and early career scientists (PhD students or post-doc), technicians from public authorities and geo-environmental companies, water utilities operators with a background in engineering, environmental sciences, earth sciences, agricultural engineering, physics, mathematics, informatics.

The participants will develop digital skills in water resource management, by using state-of-the-art ICT software. Open source and free software will be used.
