Jean Pierre Tabuchi is project manager in the health and environment department at SIAAP, the Ile-de-France public sanitation service.
The SIAAP’s main mission is to process the waste water from the Paris urban area to contribute towards reaching the good condition targeted by the framework directive on water (DCE). The achievement of this mission can realized with an optimal capacity of the Seine to accept larger or smaller quantities of pollutants, notably depending on its flow. To optimize the quality of purification of the water produced, the SIAAP is developing and implementing a quality prediction model for the Seine.
