Mr Raúl Nogueras Martínez (Canal de Isabel II)


Canal de Isabel II (CYII) is the main water and wastewater service provider in Madrid Region, supplying services to more than six million consumers. Water supply is accomplished through 14 dams which storage 946 hm3. In extended periods
of drought and/or disruptions in the water supply system, CYII is able to produce up to 70 hm3 per year from 68 wells located in the Tertiary Detrital Aquifer of Madrid (ATDM). Over the last 25 years, CYII has produced 300 hm3 from the
ATDM during five significant pumping periods, each of them ranging from 12 to 18 months.

Data management on complex environment mean a challenge itself. Adding all related issues of any industry, as maintenance, construction, QA/QC, to the more classic task of hydrogeoly as modelling, groundwater sampling..., trigger the problem to a next level. In order to tackle this problem, Canal de Isabel II is handling a powerful package of tools, focus on keeping data available and stable along the time in its well network.

From database to calculus software are provided from solid international tech companies which guarantee a long term usable framework.

This poster shows appliance of each software, interactions and main capabilities that any user can get from them. Each of these softwares are feed with data either manually or taking raw data from sensor, gauges or digital signals.

Eventually this set of software and information work as a decision aid software which let us to analyze, schedule and react to any new event or information by simplifying and reducing time consuming task.

Our groundwater database provides a quick update to our Modflow model to conduct groundwater supply scenarios and aquifer response for short and long term pumping periods
