Participation at the 29th “Almássy Endre Conference on Groundwater”

The 29th “Almássy Endre Conference on Groundwater” was held between 13-14 September and was hosted by Hotel Magistern in Siófok. This year, the József and Erzsébet Tóth Endowed Hydrogeology Chair and Foundation was represented at the conference by Anita Erőss and Petra Baják. In their presentations, they presented the latest results of their research carried out within the framework of the National Multidisciplinary Laboratory for Climate Change, RRF-2.3.1-21-2022-00014 project.

Anita Erőss spoke about the natural radioactivity of drinking water using the example of the riverbank filtered drinking water supply system in Tass. She empasized that changing river water levels as a result of climate change can have serious consequences for the water quality of these supply systems.

Petra Baják gave a presentation of the past and future water level changes of Lake Velence. With the help of numerical groundwater flow simulation, she predicted the future water level of the lake. Her results highlighted that the water level of the lake will start to decrease in the future as a result of climate change.
