Significance for science
In spite of a marked progress in recent decades, the knowledge of relations between recharge area parameters and chemical composition of groundwater still has many shortcomings, particularly with regard to certain chemical compounds and isotopes which are less frequently used in regular hydrogeological practice. In this relation it is necessary to mention a major part of trace elements, and a major part of gamma emitters among isotopes. The Groundwater chemical map of Slovenia plays an important role for further hydrogeological investigations in Slovenia, especially as it enables researchers to obtain basic information about chemical conditions in individual aquifers or aquifer systems, which they will investigate in details from different viewpoints in the future. Within the project we’ve acquired numerous data and information on dynamics and the age of different aquifers, which are very important for upgrading the existing conceptual models of individual aquifers and their spatial inter-relationships.
Significance for the country
In planning the exploitation of groundwater as a drinking water or technological water resource, the groundwater chemical composition has a key role in the evaluation of an individual water resource suitability. Therefore the results of groundwater chemical composition model and the maps derived from the model are directly applicable in many fields. The model of groundwater chemical composition provides also important data about the speed and degree of groundwater recharge in aquifers, which is a basic information in the process of the planning of remediation measures for the improvement of chemical status of groundwater. Basic and supplementary remediation measures for the improvement of groundwater chemical status will be a topical issue in Slovenia in the near future because of the process of implementation of the European Water Framework Directive and the related Water Management Plan. The chemical model of groundwater is also of quintessential importance in the planning of groundwater protection areas, because the chemical composition of groundwater reflects also the hydrogeological properties of groundwater flow. Chemical data can also be used to determine hydrographic recharge areas of aquifers where the recharge area is not (yet) known with certainty. This is often the case in Slovenia due to its complex geological and hydrogeological composition.
