Quantitative hydrogeology in the Tevere River basin management planning (central Italy)
Keywords:quantitative hydrogeology, aquifer, perennial stream network, stream network typology, water body, conceptual model
BONI provided an important contribution to water resource management in the Tiber river basin, introducing a new perspective based on the deep knowledge of hydrogeological structures geometry, hydrogeological balance, surface-groundwater interaction processes and available/renewable resource ratio and gradually abandoning the ancient exploitation schemes, based on the indiscriminate abstraction of outcrops.The European Community legislation seems to be perfectly in line with BONI's theses and bright intuitions. He can, with full rights, be considered the father of quantitative hydrogeology.
