Duration: September 2003 - December 2008
Client:  HELLENIC REPUBLIC, Ministry of Development, General Secretariat of Development, General Directorate of Natural Resources, Division of Water Potential and Natural Resources

Main characteristics:​

  • Support System of Decisions
  • Specialized simulation software

  • Hydro-meteorological, Hydrometric and Hydro-geological Database (HYMOS)
  • Surface water simulation model SACRAMENTO
  • Ground water simulation model MODFLOW – FEMWATER
  • Geographic Information System (GIS)
  • Assessment of minimum supply for important rivers of the area
  • Creation of a management model of irrigation, water supply and industrial water for the wider area
