Alter Aqua Working for a Sustainable Gozo

Alter Aqua aims to promote the utilization of NCWR , such as rain-, storm- and grey water, to increase water security and contribute to climate change adaptation at local level, in a sustainable, cost-effective way.

To achieve this goal Alter Aqua is installing and reinstating NCWR systems, mainly rainwater harvesting, stormwater retention and greywater recycling systems in selected public buildings. This green infrastructure is coupled with educational, awareness, capacity building and training activities.

Alter Aqua combines the resources of the Ministry for Gozo and the ecoGozo Project, the Global Water Partnership – Mediterranean (GWP-Med), The Coca-Cola Foundation, the General Soft Drinks Co. Ltd. The Coca-Cola Foundation with the Ministry of Gozo have provided grants to fund the project.

From Water Scarcity To Solutions

Since 2012, in the frame of Alter Aqua, four rainwater harvesting systems were installed and six rainwater harvesting systems reinstated in public schools, the Gozo Experimental Farm and the Ministry for Gozo, demonstrating the potential of collecting and reusing rainwater in small facilities, as well as securing water for irrigation. The Gozo Football Stadium has had a grey water reuse system fitted, which treats water from showers and reuses it for irrigation of the football pitch.

Increasing rain water harvesting capacity in valleys is another important part of the Programme. The example of the Alter Aqua intervention in Ramla Valley shows how by cleaning the valleys and securing the retention capacity with side rubble walls, rainwater is being better preserved throughout Gozo. In total it is estimated that annual water retention has increased by 14,000 cubic meters.

Preserving Gozo For Future Generations

Instilling the values of sustainable water management to the next generation is essential. Consequently, education forms a major component of Alter Aqua . More than 3,200 students have been educated and 255 teachers have been trained on NCWRs and sustainable water use, using the Alter Aqua educational material, developed by the Mediterranean Information Office for Environment, Culture and Sustainable Development (MIO-ECSDE), Nature Trust Malta and GWP-Med. By teaching the next generation how to responsibly manage the island’s scarce water resources, the people of Gozo are ensuring that their future is as bright as their past. Please find more information about the Alter Aqua educational programme here .
