Particular notes

Over time the distribution system has been the subject of continuous expansion and modernization with the addition and replacement of pumps and equipment, with the aim of keeping it always fully efficient and at the forefront of management, with equipment always technologically updated. 


The historic drinking water establishment of Savorgnano represents an important supply plant, by collecting from the rich aquifer of the area, accumulating it with a suitable disinfection system, and distributing it to different south-east inhabited areas of Pordenone up to the Adriatic coast.
The acqueduct is particularly strategic for the area served and therefore particularly well managed.
