Water resources used


  • 70 hidden water leaks identified on 1,000 km grid network thanks to a systematic analysis carried out specifically for the “hidden leaks “
  • A new "No Dig" technology to minimize water leaks without excavations has been successfully tested
  • “Acquasicura” project continued, to help costumers in the event of water leaks
  • A new criterion has been adopted to identify water stressed areas in the territory in wich the Group operates
