Water is a precious resource for the region and people: to reduce losses and make the service supply even more efficient, Acea Ato 5 has developed an action plan that is both innovative and streamlined.
The first step was to start right from the region: the geographical area served by the network has been divided into smaller sections, characterized by the presence of water tanks. New technologies were applied to each area to ensure a more accurate and precise network control, including remotely controlled pressure gauges, hydro valves and a careful analysis of interconnection and the exchange of water volumes.
While the pressure gauges enable remote monitoring of the network's water pressure from our Frosinone center, hydro valves allow to stabilize the pressure wherever needed. These two actions, together with an intense campaign to substitute water meters and find any irregular water supply, made the difference.
The improvement was immediate. Now any leak is detected at once, and we can act quickly to repair any damage and ensure the safety of our water network. In turn, this benefits all citizens, who experience fewer problems linked to water supply and may soon see the progressive lifting of restricted usage, especially when it extends to affect the winter months.
