Groundwater is the most important resource for drinking water supply in Germany. The last years were dry and characterized by low groundwater recharge. This has shown that management of groundwater resources will be a challenge in the future due to climate change. Another consequence of climate change is the increasing water demand on peak days during hot and dry periods. The water resources currently used and the existing infrastructure are insufficient to guarantee drinking water supply in the future. Therefore, additional water resources will be necessary for mastering the impacts of climate change.
