We are we?

Some members of this group are not members of Water Group. It would be nice to acknowledge their work, to give them visibility and recognition for their work at a larger scale. Suggestion not to make them part of the Water Group itself, rather a possible Technical group definition. To be finalised in the next meeting

Giulio's absence

Pavneet needs to finalise the list of wells for piezometers with Giulio, and check some post-processing doubts
Raj and Ram will go on with the survey in RZ. Giulio will receive requests for Projects surveys, and will update Ram, Raj, Pavneet and Philippe via mail. Either Pavneet or Philippe should accompany Raj and Ram during site visits with aurovilian project holders, to mediate possible difficult requests.
Jeanne and Meera would like to discuss how to go on about evaluation of flows, together with Giulio, Gilles and Tency
Philippe will start working on data analysis, in order to have a tool for the water budget. He will also investigate about a compact weather station
Tency would like to see the resilience of the team when one member is TOS. He is also concerned about equipment safety.

Jeanne departure

Jeanne's visa will expire in mid august. She is planning to renew it for one year and go on with her work on waste water systems. Nevertheless she will be TOS for one or two months after 15th of august.

Meera's working engagement

Meera started working on WWTP at beginning of March 2018, thanks to an agreement with L'avenir, duration of which is 6 months. She would like to complete satisfactorily the work she is actually engaged with.
