Safeguarding the quality and availability of groundwater through sustainable management
Climate change has significant impacts on groundwater and so solutions are needed to safeguard aquifer recharge and water quality. BRGM has developed services to monitor and manage groundwater bodies, both in terms of availability and quality, in order to provide forecasts about changes in the state of aquifers at a national and local level.
