Bank filtration and groundwater recharge are important treatment steps for drinking water production, e.g. in Berlin. The project was initiated to get a deeper understanding of the behavior of anthropogenic and natural organic substances during bank filtration. The project’sd aim was to develop optimal design and operational parameters for bank filtration sites by means of hydrogeological models and on-site monitoring.
The results are summarised in the following reports, all of which were prepared after the project’s internal review.
- Subproject 1:
Investigating Hydrogeological-Hydrogeochemical Processes during Bank Filtration and Artifi-cial Ground Water Recharge Us-ing a Multi Tracer Approach
- Subproject 2:
Integrated Modelling Concepts for Bank Filtration Processes: Coupled Ground Water Transport and Biogeochemical Reactions
Occurrence and Fate of Drug Residues and Related Polar Contaminants during Bank Filtration and Artificial Recharge
- Subproject 4:
Organic Substances in Bank Filtration and Groundwater Recharge-Process Studies
- Subproject 5:
Retention and Elimination of Cyanobacterial Toxins (Microcystins) through Artificial Recharge and Bank Filtration
- Subproject 6:
Using Bacteriophages, Indicator Bacteria, and Viral Pathogens for Assessing the Health Risk of Drinking Water Obtained by Bank Filtration
