Program

Technical tours

Virtual tours on the facilities to be visited in the conference last-day excursions will be exposed by means of slides, videos and guides.

Three different excursions are envisaged in a distant about 150 km from Madrid City center (1 and 2) and the number 3 is about 10 km away.

1-LOS ARENALES AQUIFER FACILITIES IN SEGOVIA PROVINCE

A full day trip, visiting different facilities of MAR for irrigation and environmental uses. The activity is closely linked to the agro-industry in the area, and there is a consolidated cooperation scheme between scientists and practitioners with the farmers in the irrigation communities. Facilities are managed under the river basin authorities’ permission with the help of stakeholders.

There are a vast amount of dams specifically designed for MAR, infiltration ponds, canals, artificial wetlands, salt lakes restored by means of MAR, covered wells…

This is the main living lab for DINA-MAR project and the biggest MARSOL demo-site. In the way back it is feasible to visit the Roman aqueduct in Segovia province.

The full Living Lab is displayed in a MARSOL project´s movie:

2-GUADIANA CHANNEL AND DAIMIEL NATIONAL PARK

In the same distance but the opposite direction than the previous visit, there is a battery of 25 MAR wells and boreholes along a canal for temporal and intermittent recharge. The design is unique and is an example of quick recharge to store winter water surpluses.

At the end of this battery there are four boreholes more for environmental purposes, recharging Tablas de Daimiel National Park. The visit might be complemented with a visit to the Park before returning to Madrid.

Paper guides and/or audio guides for the most relevant itineraries might be prepared for the field trips, in case some participants wish visiting the facilities after ISMAR 10 finalizes.

3-ASR/ASTR/DEPTH INJECTION BOREHOLES IN MADRID (Confirmed)

Managed by the Madrid Water supply company (CYII) there are three different batteries of boreholes with an specific and unique design in less than 12 km from the venue site.

Boreholes are until 500 m depth and recharge the semiconfined aquifer. These facilities could be visited in a half day trip for those attendants with time limitations.

POST-CONFERENCE FIELD TRIPS

The organizers will do their best to convey appointments between agents performing MAR activities in Barcelona and Seville for those interested to be allowed to visit them after the symposium.

Cetaqua Technological Center, from Barcelona, has already expressed their willingness to receive interested members to visit their facilities after the end of the conference.

Members of the SC/TC Committee have expressed their willingness to coordinate this post-conference tour for the whole ISMAR community.
