Dear Sir ,Wishing you Ever Success .
i am Civil Engineering graduate with 40 years successful experiences in Water Resources Urban/Rural/Tourist infrastructure developments.Where several water related problems & supplies in crises areas has been planned with Innovative Design & concepts for Best Use of Water Wealth.
Sir ,Our GOD is giving sufficient Rains .But we are using about 1/3 & remaining is flowing back to sea. This can be planed to save / secure / use by innovative designs/concepts. Secondly it is realiased that after 30 years developments of water recharge works ,the ground water is going below & below with increase of contamination/pollution/sea water intrusion .This is alarming to review /search & research to redesign the structure/ system to achieve perfect recharge .Thirdly it is realized that the rainfall in water Reservoir area are more then plain or forest area. We feel more coolness around Reservoir then forest .This is also required to study for getting more precipitation.
If you think the comments are useful for (1)using more Rain water (2) More ground water recharge (3) More precipitation ,then kindly guide me o proceed for the Best Use of World Water Wealth.

Dear Olman Mora Navarro,
Thank you very much for your interest in the webinar, which was organized together with the Geo-Network of Latin American–German Geoscientists and Geoengineers (GOAL). In the near future, no other webinar on waste water will be held.
Kind regards!
