Latitude and B&M Engineering are now collaborating on a hydrological study for the Sile river (Treviso, Italy). The study aims at understanding the recent dysfunctions like the problems of draught and flood that affect the river track that goes from its spring to the city centre of Treviso and which are also linked to the intensive irrigation and hydroelectric uses of water.
But the fact that the Sile is today entirely dependent from the water coming from the northern diversions of the Piave river makes it even more fragile. Understanding the broader picture and the water systems' mutual dependency is thus a priority.
