Water Resources Management in Visitor Attractions - FIT4USE Water Recirculation Technology

Registration number:101114509

Realization period:01.07. 2023 – 31.12. 2026

Leader at TUL:Ing. Tomáš Lederer, Ph.D.

The basic environmental problem of self-managed visitor facilities (such as zoos, parks, botanical gardens, sports and entertainment facilities, etc.) is the general lack of usable water (UV) of a quality corresponding to actual needs. This leads to a high consumption of potable water (PV), which is of unnecessarily high quality. Reduction to elimination of PV consumption will be demonstrated as a primary outcome of the proposed project. The optimal solution is to reuse less polluted wastewater (WW) together with another environmental problem - increasing water retention in the landscape by recharging groundwater (GW) and surface water (SW) resources. The project will also result in a reduction of the carbon footprint by using nature-based, low-cost water treatment systems and by increasing the carbon cycle from OV within the zoo and reducing emissions in the form of OV. These issues are more or less pan-European. The project solutions are primarily targeted at zoo type visitor centres. However, the conceptual measures developed within the overall water management cycle will be easily generalisable and transferable to sports and entertainment venues, parks, botanical gardens, etc.
