- Acea Ato 5 reduces water losses in the district of Frosinone
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.
New treatment plants and work on the water mains
To improve the quality and efficiency of the water service, in 2022 Acea Ato 5 completed its revamping works on the Serrone La Mola plant, and the works on the water treatment plant of Anagni Ponte Piano are currently in progress. Additionally, the works on the water treatment plant of Roccasecca Scalo have been completed, while those on the water treatment plant of Monte San Giovanni Campano Colli are in progress. The activities on the water treatment plants of Fontana Liri and Villa Latina Pontecorvo are currently, at various stages, in the design phase.
In 2022, the number of remotely managed sites increased to 395. 16 of these are equipped with water quality control systems, in addition to load, pressure and level gauges. Furthermore, we activated ongoing load or pressure monitoring on 111 network points.
In 2022, Acea Ato 5 divided in sectors the networks serving 9 new municipalities and upgraded previously implemented sectors to balance network operation and optimise the distribution service. The Company created 100 new sectors, which cover 856 km of network.
