Management of urban water resources in Central Europe facing climate change
The impact of climate change is increasingly important for the design, construction, and maintenance of water infrastructure. Scarcity of water resources due to extreme weather events and falling groundwater levels threaten our cities and regions. The MAURICE project introduces new water management solutions for cities. The partnership helps to integrate these into broader concepts on regional climate change adaptation and encourages the uptake of urban water management tools and measures.

We tackle the challenges of managing changing water quality, rainwater management and groundwater deficit management. We identified six different areas to support water resources in cities and preserve them for future generations. Our pilot actions aim to address the difficulties faced by various regions in Central Europe.
We provide climate change-adaptation solutions for public administration, water management and supply bodies in Central Europe. These joint-developed solutions together with a management strategy for modern urban water management considering climate change will foster behavioural change in water management and spatial planning practices.
Quantifying resilience to climate change – results of a workshop on the Slovenian pilot action
In the face of climate change, it is becoming necessary to safeguard the ability of our streams and rivers to cope with increased water during storms. Heavy rains can put tremendous pressure on our sewer systems, threatening to overload them. With strategic planning and innovative approaches, we can prevent ...
Field Work: Exploring Groundwater Interactions in the Varaždin Aquifer
Recently a team of representatives from the Faculty of Geotechnical Engineering, University of Zagreb has embarked on an important field work expedition. Their mission was to gather valuable data on groundwater quality and the interaction between surface and groundwater in the Varaždin aquifer.
What we need to know about the impact of climate change on water resources – MAURICE Interreg Central Europe project
Our most precious resource, the reservoir of water in the ground, is decreasing. Water authorities have been worried for a long time. The water supply of millions of people is at risk. MAURICE project supports your water management and helps to adapt to climate change. See our project movie!
Milan Pilot Action: Winter Irrigation for Groundwater Recharge
The pilot action in Milan highlighted the importance of using available resources and reimagining traditional practices to mitigate the effects of climate change. Using the existing irrigation network and winter irrigation, collecting and storing water in the aquifer offers a sustainable solution that can address the challenges faced by ...
How water behaves when infiltrating soil – water infiltration tests have started
Understanding the percolation capacity of the soil and how infiltration facilities respond to rainwater can help inform future infrastructure and landscaping decisions to mitigate flooding and protect water sources.
