Bio clear earth

Nature’s capabilities to improve groundwater quality: water corridors!

Bioclear earth’s pay-off “Creating with the power of Nature” is very well applicable on our latest concept: Water corridors. Engineered corridors, placed at strategic spots in the area, where the soil- water-system is designed and “equipped” with natural processes. Green processes consisting of microbial communities in the subsurface soil and groundwater, combined with functional plants, schrubs and trees. The aim: improving groundwater and surface quality in an effective way in areas of hunderds to thousands of hectares. In our densily populated country and especially our intensifly used argicultural areas, a big challenge is to meet the European Groundwater Directive for nutrients and pecticides. Land is scarce and various societal challenges have to be met: climate mitigation, secure water quality, sustainable agriculture.

During your visit at our company on the 17th of May we will work together, based on your background and support, on a real water corridors case in the North-East region:

  • How can we implement such a corridor from a planning point of view, what does it take?

  • How can we get the support of the various stake holders involved and whom are the stakeholders to be involved?

  • How about financing a water corridor from a societal and cooperation-based point of view?

  • How can we share cost and gain benefits, shared in a honest way to stake holders?

Hope to see and discuss with you this challenging case!
