The Banat plain area is possible to be problematic in terms of public water supply for the future, in condition of climate changes, so it is important to estimate the groundwater resources availability for the shallow aquifer, which can be a supplementary water source. The study area covers the central area of ROBA03 groundwater body and smaller areas from ROBA04, and ROBA02, which is an economic and demographic growing area. In present, the shallow aquifer, which is in good status from quantitative point of view, is used like drinking water supply source only for domestic use and in industrial and agricultural activities. The FREEWAT platform will allow the evaluation of groundwater resources in the phreatic aquifer and their availability for any future necessities, taking into consideration the Programmes of Measures developed within the RBMP and based on the area socio-economic development.
