A cooperation consisting of the city of Gossau, the technical Services of Gossau, the Municipal Utilities of St. Gallen (sgsw) as well as the Canton of St. Gallen have decided to commission GBB with an extensive groundwater model calculation in order to protect and plan a sustainable cultivation of the extensively used groundwater volume between Gossau and St.Gallen. The models goal is to better estimate the future impact on the groundwater arising from additional usage of the water and the construction of new buildings in that zone. Moreover, it is useful in order to design possible future zones for the use of geothermal energy from the groundwater.
