A river, over 145 thousand people, 11 million litres of water daily. How does water get to your house? How is it returned to the environment?
There is a long way from the water in its natural state and the complex social use that we make of it. For over 25 years, EMATSA has ensured adequate water management from the source from which it is taken to delivery to your home, supported by a deep respect for the environment with a water supply in perfect condition for our society’s daily use.
But water does not end its journey when it leaves your tap. After we use it, it goes down the drain, having diminished its quality. This wastewater, before returning it to the environment, must be purified. Only this way will it not harm nature and thus allow us to source it again in the future, starting the cycle once again and so preserving our water reserves.
