UPWATER will provide tools and strategies to implement safe and contaminant-free recharge water into aquifers. The involvement of stakeholders, water agencies, and policymakers using co-creation spaces that will involve citizenship participation will trigger social acceptance and appraisal of the solutions provided in this project.

The project will also increase public awareness of the advantages of engineered natural treatment systems to enhance water quality while providing evidence, models, and methods applicable through regulatory and governance decisions.
