Bi-annual DayWater newsletter - September 04

We have reached the second year of the DayWater project and tend to inform you about the numerous ongoing activities, where some might be of interest for you.
The bio-test procedure applied to runoff and re-suspended sediments has been defined and the test-sites chosen. The first tests were conducted in the Wupper River region (Germany), in Luleå and in Stockholm (Sweden) and as well in Nantes (France).

The CityNet Cluster organised an end-user workshop in Ghent (Belgium) entitled "Integrated Urban Water Management". 14 end-users of the 6 projects came to present their needs. Representatives of the European Commission and the IWA presented "EU policy - one coherent management frame" and "From concept to practice: IWA's vision for sustainable cities". Adjacent a workshop for junior scientists on "Process data and integrated modelling" took place near Lyon (France).

The 5th International conference on sustainable techniques and strategies in urban water management (Novatech) was held in Lyon in June 2004. DayWater and CityNet project partners were highly represented with contributions of their specific domain.
We prepare the second DayWater annual meeting to be held in Copenhagen vicinity, at the Danish Technical University (DTU) between the 30 September and the 1st October 2004. One conference day will be dedicated to research progress presentation and discussion. The second day is dedicated to end-user testing and comments to DayWater decision support system, i.e. its IT shell and its components or tools, in their present state of development.
