Abstract:
The purpose of a three-year long project is to establish a uniform cross-border action system for the Civil Protection Service in cases of hazards posed to the sources of drinking water owing to technological risks and natural disasters and thus contribute to the development of new information and communication technologies and sustainable territorial integration and preservation of environment in the areas of Goriška statistical region, Obalno-Kraška statistical region, Gorenjska statistical regions and Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Hydrological systems are not limited by state borders, the impacts of pollution may freely spread across the borders that is why their integrated management by means of cross-border coordination is necessary. For the Civil Protection Service an algorithm of action, harmonised by cross-border players, will be developed which will be supported by means of the GIS (Geographic Information System) regarding the sources of drinking water. This algorithm of action will be an important functional tool for immediate and efficient action of all institutions and bodies involved in the cases of intervention. A key achievement of the project will be an upgrade and improvement of the GIS system with a hydrological model for the Karst aquifer of the Trnovo-Banjščice Plateau and the alluvium of the Soča (Isonzo) River being the main common source of drinking water for the cross-border region of Gorica (Gorizia)-Trieste and a spatial decision support system ((DSS/SDSS) based on the analysis of indicators regarding the impact of the soil use to the sources of drinking water. planned activities: A development of the common project portal; a development of uniform cross-border algorithm of action for the Civil Protection Service in cases of hazards poised to the sources of drinking water in cases of incidents and emergency situation, a preparation of a mirror GIS system regarding the sources of drinking water for the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Goriška statistical region, Gorenjska statistical region and Obalno-Kraška statistical region, an analysis of hydro and geological status of the Trnovo-Banjščice Plateau and the hydrological basin of the Soča River, a development of a vulnerability map, pollution load map and hazard map; a study of process regarding the spreading of pollutants; bringing results into the hydro and geological model; a preparation of integrated methods for the analysis of physical space and environment management in the cross-border area; an introduction of COLILERT method for fast microbiological water testing; information and publicity. planned results: The developed uniform algorithm of action covering the cross-border area for the Civil Protection Service in cases of hazards posed to the sources of drinking water in cases of incidence and emergency situation; the developed mirror GIS system regarding the sources of drinking water for the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Goriška statistical region, Gorenjska statistical region and Obalno-Kraška statistical region upgraded with a hydro and geological model for the aquifer of the Trnovo-Banjščice Plateau and the alluvium of the Soča River and improved with the spatial decision support system ((DSS/SDSS) based on the analysis of indicators regarding the impact of the soil use to the sources of drinking water; the introduced COLILERT method for fast microbiological water testing; the developed common project portal; presentation and publication of results to the public.
