We invest great efforts to optimise available resources and avoid wasting water during the water treatment process. To do this, we investigate new methods and technologies that allow us to be an increasingly sustainable company.
The scarcity and importance of this natural resource has prompted us to seek new and more sustainable methods for obtaining water and to get the most from it without wasting it. Desalination of seawater and the maximum use of all available fresh water sources in the area are the two most important measures that are being developed in this aspect.
Awareness for the rational use of natural resources and environmental protection has led us to develop projects using groundwater for uses that do not require the quality of drinking water.
The most common uses for groundwater of non-drinkable quality are the following:
- Irrigation of parks and water-sparklers
- Drop by drop irrigation of green areas
- Irrigation of golf and football courses
- Filling of water tanker lorries for road or sewer cleaning
- Decorative fountains
The sectorisation of the supply network project involves its division into smaller units of management in order to facilitate the execution of local and constant analysis of the flow and water pressure in each of them and to facilitate leak detection campaigns.
The data is collected in data registers and sent to the management centre once a day. These include the daily minimum flow, which provides information on the level of leaks of the sector or the evolution of the flow throughout the day to identify fraud and leakage. Furthermore, the management of all technical and economic sectors which allow the optimisation of maintenance and network investments.
The installation of high-precision electronic meters in homes and businesses improves network efficiency and helps minimise water losses. The technology of these meters optimises these leak detection processes and allows faster reactions in interventions.
