Dealing with salinization of surface water. Local and regional water boards have observed that climate change drastically affects waterbodies. Last year, EUWMA declared that local water boards accommodate most of these challenges that we are facing.

Additionally, salinization is one of the most important causes of contamination of fresh water resources in coastal areas.
