The paper Assessment of urban groundwater: towards integrated hydrogeological and effects-based monitoring by Guimarães L., Guilhermino L., Afonso M.J., Marques J.M., Chaminé H.I. was published in Sustainable Water Resources Management.
Urban groundwater is a core resource to human health, and well-being, decisive for sustainable development. This work provides a synthesis of valuable effect-based tools suitable for integrated quality evaluation and presents an example of integrated assessment (hydrogeological, effects-based assays, GIS-based mapping) of an urban groundwater system in a fissured bedrock medium, and its management advantages tackling water scarcity.
