The possibility of using as drinking water the huge groundwater resources stored in the Gran Sasso Massif (Abruzzo Region, Italy) and collected by means of drainage works in the highway tunnels connecting the cities of L’Aquila and Teramo is dependent on water hygienic safety in terms of avoiding risks of contamination deriving from traffic accidents involving hazardous materials spills. This paper describes the hydraulic security devices and the automatic control system which are able to delay the introduction of the drained water to the supply networks, allowing a sufficient time for detecting any possible contamination and then evacuating the polluted water.

Abstract

The possibility of using as drinking water the huge groundwater resources stored in the Gran Sasso Massif (Abruzzo Region, Italy) and collected by means of drainage works in the highway tunnels connecting the cities of L’Aquila and Teramo is dependent on water hygienic safety in terms of avoiding risks of contamination deriving from traffic accidents involving hazardous materials spills. This paper describes the hydraulic security devices and the automatic control system which are able to delay the introduction of the drained water to the supply networks, allowing a sufficient time for detecting any possible contamination and then evacuating the polluted water.
