STORY OF HYDROGEOPARK
The former contaminated site, which by its existence threatened not only groundwater but also surface water and was located near mineral water sources, has been successfully undergoing remediation works in recent years. The result is a current situation that complies with demanding legislation and remediation limits for chlorinated ethylene pollution. During the realization of the rehabilitation project, more than twenty hydrogeological objects were created for sampling, monitoring, as well as the actual remediation. In parallel, an extensive and time-lapse collection of hydrogeological, chemical and physical data characterizing the transformation of the site was created. These assumptions led to the emergence of a unique infrastructure for research (Hydrogeopark Pátek, HGP), development and innovation in environmental engineering, with particular emphasis on the management and management of water resources. The extensive network of hydrogeological objects has been supplemented by other, suitably selected for the purposes of simulation of specific processes, their control and monitoring. The so-called hydrogeological radar has been installed on the site, providing on-line data on groundwater parameters at the site while archiving them. In addition, the meteorological measurement itself is also operated on a similar principle, also available in the mobile application and with data entry into the archive. An integral part of HGP is the background for sample preparation, measuring, storage and disposing of electrical power, data signal and water. HGP can be operated at any time and in regular mode by ensuring the presence of its attendants, samplers, etc.
