Integrated water cycle refers to the management of three services: water supply network, the sewerage system and water treatment.
Management of the water network supply includes uptake and supply of drinking water, including water purification and drinking water treatment actions where necessary.
The drinking water supplied comes from spring water and water wells.
Water supply is provided to the Municipalitie of Brescia and several municipalities throughout the province.
In Brescia and its province, the water supplied is drawn from 125 springs and 156 wells.
The sewerage system consists of gathering and collection of reflux waters from the water treatment plants. In the treatment plant, reflux water is treated to eliminate pollutants to ensure that its quality is in line with environmental protection standards in the areas to which they are returned.
