The goal of the Adaptaclima-EPAL project was to conduct a study with a strong research component in order to assess the impact of climate change on EPAL’s system and the necessary adaptation measures, in a strategy aimed at reducing the company’s vulnerabilities in the medium and long term.

The study began on 30 September 2010 and lasted 30 months. It was developed by a multi-disciplinary team from several universities, coordinated by Professor Filipe Duarte Santos from the Lisbon School of Sciences. The project’s development was also monitored by the Grupo das Alterações Climáticas da EPAL (GAC), EPAL’s Group for Climate Change.

The study area covered EPAL’s catchment area as well as practically the whole of the River Tagus’s basin in Portugal, taking into account the location of the EPAL water system’s sources. A particular focus was placed on the Zêzere river basin upstream of the Castelo do Bode damn and the Tagus river basin upstream of the Valada collection point, as well as the Tejo - Sado and Ota - Alenquer Aquifers.
