1 Artificial Water Storage in Artificial Islands Marloes van Ginkel Theo Olsthoorn Deltas in Times of Climate Change II Rotterdam, 25 September 2014

2 ASR Aquifer Storage Recovery MAR Managed Aquifer Recharge Artificial Subsurface Water Storage 2

3 Water Storage Seasonal storage Long-term storage Emergency storage Reclaimed water storage for reuse 3

4 Subsurface Storage Pros Multifunctional use of the area large space available land requirements are minimal Advantages for water quality Constant temperature, absence of sunlight heating and evaporation losses No mosquitoes or algal bloom Potential bacteriological purification and equalisation of the water quality 4 Requirements: Water Sandy soil Wells

5 Artificial Islands 5 Palm Jumeirah Dubai Maasvlakte II Rotterdam Eko Atlantic Lagos

6 Artificial Islands Constructed of sand Designed from scratch High water demands Limited freshwater resources High land prices 6
