22 Billion m3/year


Conclusions of the Master plan for water managment

 « Albian water table is considered as a strategic water ressource for drinking water rescue and should be safegarded »

 Count the drills and volumes

 Build a model (BGRM)

 Propose management rules

 Propose rescue plan


Results included in the new master plan

29 Billion m3/year

 The consequences of new taking of water have to be

analysed with the

model before giving

the autorisation

 Drills sould be able

for 3 month in rescue

situations
