Reuse Tool is a digital water management solution for the creation of Water Reuse Risk Management Plans for Agriculture.
For whom - End Users
The tool aims to support operators of wastewater and reclamation water treatment plants, managers of risk plans, farmers, administrations, and reclaimed water users.
The tool offers an integrated and straightforward approach to executing the distinct steps required for Water Reuse and Risk Management Plan (WRRMP) creation. The outcome is a pre-set editable document that guides the user in assembling a WRRMP, incorporating information from each step of the tool.
The ReTo tool is the first free tool that facilitates the creation, implementation and revision of Water Reuse Risk Management plans for Agriculture. Overcoming the challenges of information overload, lengthy and time-consuming processes and changing regulations, the tool helps users in the comprehensive management of reclaimed water for Mediterranean agriculture.
ReTo stands out as a meticulously developed open-source solution within the Google environment, leveraging various Google applications to cater to a growing user base and expanding datasets. Unlike other systems, ReTo eliminates the need for data storage, account creation, or user sign-in, prioritizing user privacy and the confidentiality of system-related data. Utilizing Google tools such as Slides, Maps, and Sheets, the solution streamlines the assessment, control, and monitoring of water quality in a water reuse system. Its distinctive features include visualizing treatment configurations, conducting risk assessments through a semi-automated spreadsheet, and providing detailed control and monitoring protocols in a structured format. The outcome is a pre-set editable document that guides users in crafting a Water Reuse and Risk Management Plan (WRRMP) with ease, ensuring a user-friendly experience and compliance with regulatory requirements.
As part of the MAGO project, the ReTo solution is being tested in Spain and France.
Technology Stack and Methodology
To access and use the tool the user should visit the website (ReTo_by_MAGO). The platform functions as the repository for the tool, furnishing the essential guidelines for executing Water Reuse Risk Management Plans (WRRMPs). These guidelines are thoughtfully orsome photos, ganized into separate tabs, facilitating seamless navigation for users through the various steps of WRRMP implementation.
Collaboration and Partnerships
The solution has been developed by CETAQUA and it is being tested in Spain and France with the participation of the project partners and stakeholders such as Agbar Agriculture.

Open-source tools for water management developed in MAGO Prima
Various free and open-source solutions have been developed to provide water managers, irrigation communities, farmers, and scientists with access to water quality information from Sentinel 2 satellites, as well as accurate historical and future climate data from the Copernicus Climate Data Store.
In a nutshell:
1. These tools operate within well-established, freely accessible web platforms, specifically the Sentinel Hub EO Browser and the Copernicus Climate Data Store Toolbox. By leveraging these platforms, users can benefit from the reliability and popularity enjoyed by thousands of other users.
2. These tools consist of open-source codes that have been integrated into these web platforms, allowing users to execute and customise the code to their needs.
3. The tools enable the processing of free datasets, including satellite images and climate modelling data.
4. Users can conveniently view the results directly on the web platform's interface, presented as interactive maps and time series plots.
5. All that's required to run these applications is an internet connection, and it's best to use a computer for optimal interface visibility and file downloads.
6. These tools have been developed with great care and dedication by CETAQUA, the coordinator of the PRIMA MAGO Project, with the aim of benefiting end-users. We encourage you to make full use of these tools and share them with others!
