A decision support system for the consortium ‘Pianura Di Ferrara’

A complex reclaimed area now under control

The Consortium PIANURA di FERRARA, located in north-east Italy (north-east of Bologna, next to the Adriatic Sea) is currently operating a complex network of irrigation channels. The drainage system of the reclaimed area is managed by the operation of a complex and structured system of canalisations, pumps and gates. A Decision Support System (DSS) for the entire complex area has been developed and implemented. This provides support to the Consortium technicians in both ordinary and emergency activities.
