The aim of this innovation project is to develop an innovative borehole monitoring approach based on fibre-optic cables for temperature-sensing borehole installations. Such monitoring system, along with additional numerical groundwater modelling, will help predict the occurrence of turbidity events in groundwater that would result in a loss of supply as a result of water contamination, damage to assets and infrastructure and consequent economic losses. This new approach will enable water companies to adequately assess the risk to their water supply systems and infrastructure and to implement adaptation measures that ensure the safe functioning of production and supply infrastructure.
