Quality of natural waters and wastewater management in fragile island ecosystems.

The objective is to assess the quality of diverse natural waters used for irrigation in Zante, to disseminate the aforementioned results to the local community and government and to explore the possibility of collaborating with local entrepreneurs so that new methods will be used. Furthermore, the objective is to evaluate the pilot operation of standard wastewater treatment plant compared to a sewage treatment plant in Zante in order to be able to reuse water for irrigation.
