Summary:

INTCATCH will change the way current in which river and lake water monitoring is implemented. The project will accomplish this by developing efficient, user friendly water monitoring strategies and systems based on innovative technologies that will be able to provide real time data for important parameters. The new business model will transform water governance by facilitating sustainable water quality management by community groups and NGOs using a decision support system and eco-innovative technologies. The INTCATCH systems will be implemented and validated in the urban London and rural Great Ouse rivers in the UK and in Lake Garda (Italy) and will be demonstrated in Lake Yliki (Greece) and in River Tier (Spain).
