Assessment of Groundwater Potential Risk by Agricultural Activities, in North Italy

Ye Zhao, Marina De Maio, and Enrico Suozzi

Abstract—The goal of this study was to use GIS technology to develop maps of relative groundwater risk from agriculture activity in Vercelli plain. SINTACS will be connected with a IPA Meanwhile, agricultural chemical compounds concentration, compiled from domestic wells throughout the study area will be use to calibration the index model. SINTACS model was used to determine the instinct vulnerability of the groundwater shows that most of the Vercelli plain’s groundwater is at high to very high risk in terms of pollution potential. Sensitivity analysis was employed to figure out the acutely importance of the single data layer.

Index Terms—Groundwater, agriculture, GIS, index model.
