INTCATCH will change the way current in which river and lake water monitoring is implemented. The project will accomplish this by developing efficient, user friendly water monitoring strategies and systems based on innovative technologies that will be able to provide real time data for important parameters. The new business model will transform water governance by facilitating sustainable water quality management by community groups and NGOs using a decision support system and eco-innovative technologies. The INTCATCH systems will be implemented and validated in the urban London and rural Great Ouse rivers in the UK and in Lake Garda (Italy) and will be demonstrated in Lake Yliki (Greece) and in River Tier (Spain).

Innovative Monitoring Strategies and Decision Support Workshop, River Great Ouse, UK
 A technical tour was carried out at the River Ter where the Intcatch monitoring system will be tested, as well as the current monitoring that is done in this area. 
Technological innovation in water quality monitoring

INTCATCH will deliver technological innovation in water quality monitoring to take on the challenges highlighted:
  • Autonomous and radio controlled boats to provide better access and coverage of waterbodies 
  • Innovative Sensors make monitoring easier and cheaper for ‘non-experts’ to do, and do 'more effective monitoring for less’ 
  • Next Generation DNA test kits provide faster, better results 
  • Innovative Treatment systems – for combined sewer outflows 
  • Decision Support System optimizes the water quality monitoring strategies and, ultimately, the management of the water bodies via measures in River Basin Plans 
  • Cloud based geo referenced data management solutions to support sharing with whole community and raising alerts in time to take action to protect end users/uses.
