Resumen:
Un centro académico de investigación belga ha desarrollado un nuevo software integrado de apoyo a la decisión para gestionar recursos hídricos destinado a agentes de gestión de recursos hídricos y científicos. Este software tiene en cuenta las cargas naturales y antropogénicas para analizar impactos en la calidad fisicoquímica de masas de agua y ecosistemas asociados. La gestión hídrica se extiende a la economía, escenarios de cambio climático, tendencias demográficas, crecimiento de presiones antrópicas, etc. El software permite a responsables en la toma de decisiones del sector hídrico ofrecer medidas (plan de gestión) y predecir la mejora de la calidad del agua. También se utiliza para implementar la Directiva Marco del Agua (2000/60/CE) y para realizar estudios de impacto. El centro de investigación busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia e investigación.

Integrated Water Resource Management: from software to policies
Summary:
A Belgian academic research center has developed a new integrated water resource management decision support software, used by water management stakeholders and scientists. It takes into account natural and anthropogenic loads to assess impacts on the physicochemical quality of waterbodies and associated ecosystems. The water management is extended to economy, climate change scenarios, demographic trends, growth of anthropic pressures... The center is looking for licence and research agreement.
Description:
The software suite is a powerful holistic water management tool assisting water management stakeholders, industries and researchers in the establishment of pressure / impact relationships and in handling complexes forecasting scenarios at various scales (from watershed to international district). It allows decision makers in the water sector to provide measures (management plan) and to forecast associated water quality enhancement. The model is also dedicated to implement the WFD (Water Framework Directive 2000/60/CE) as well as to assist for free release authorization requests and impact studies. Recent new developments extend the model capabilities to assess accidental releases and dynamic coupling to other compartments of water resource management (economy, climate changes, soils loads, hydrogeology, agricultural practices ...).The software suite differs from other models in its capabilities of being fully complete in its physically (and mathematically)-based description of all ecosystem processes while being operational and useful by stakeholders themselves (through an ergonomic graphical user interface).
The tool is made available to the market via license agreement, individual studies or project expertise. Types of partners sought are water management stakeholders, consortia, water operators, decision makers and environmental consciousness companies regarding their environmental responsibilities. Actors involved in environmental scientific research are also sought, in order to establish scientific as well as research and development (R-Y-D) cooperations.
Advantages and Innovations:
The Belgian research team offers various integrated water resource management tools including, amongst other, a deterministic and physically based modelling software (provided with a graphical user interface), that enable a enhanced holistic description of the hydrological system. The innovation is generated through an acknowledged experience in the development of technologically advanced software suite helping in integrated water quality management and forecasting. The methodology implies a wide variety of natural and anthropogenic input data: urban, industrial, WWTP [WasteWater Treatment Plants], livestock discharges, and processes ... in order to assess physicochemical quality of water bodies. It is a deterministic non-stationary quality processing engine taking into account various parameters as the anthropogenic impact, corbicula, segmentation and suspended matter, transport of micropollutants, accidental releases, heavy metals, ... The modelling processes that reckon physical, chemical and biological factors requires numerous input data assimilated by numerical algorithms and tools. Through a better understanding of the described basin, it also allows to reinforce the monitoring Network as well as the waste water treatment strategies. New developments reinforce its capability to be coupled to additional modules in order to integrate other pressure impact relationships (economic, social, demography, climate changes, groundwater resources, soils loads, agricultural practices ...) and the assessment of their associated forecasts.
