Our company has been given the opportunity to provide water research assistance in such a water-scarce area as the town of Srebrenik in Bosnia.
Field measurements were carried out in two phases.
In early June 2021, preliminary field surveys, in situ investigations and water sampling were carried out in accessible wells. We walked along and marked the future Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) tracks, while documenting terrain and vegetation conditions. The recorded information was incorporated into a GIS system, facilitating field orientation and survey management.
In the second phase, in September 2021, the preparation of the section traces and the effective implementation of the ERT measurements took place. The evaluation of the results clearly shows the marked differences in resistivity of the potential aquifer and impermeable layers.
Our investigations, together with data from known wells, are input parameters for a hydrogeological model of the area, which can be used to define a long-term water reserves for the town of Srebrenik and its surroundings.
The feasibility study will summarize our results and propose further measurements and investment possibilities.
This project would not have come to life without the help of our long-standing relationship with Esad Dedić and the municipality of Srebrenik.
