A survey of pollutants showed that terbuthylazine was threatening the drinkable waters provision for approximately 20% of the population of the Region Tuscany (central Italy). In order to help the decontaminate water resources in the area, a project named LIFE-UE SERIAL-WELLFIR (SErchio RIver ALimented WELL-Fields Integrated Rehabilitation) was developed. Within the activities of the project was previewed the implementation of a Web-GIS in order to support a “bi-directional” flow of communication among the Administrative Bodies and the correspondent community of customers. The use of informatics had helped the access to the data collected during the project facilitating the diffusion and the understanding of information also from the “non-expert”. In agreement with the last tendencies of the European environmental policies, it can be assumed that the possibility to enhance the knowledge and the awareness of these issues among the stakeholders may represent a relevant base for their resolution and a duty for every initiative developed with public financings.
