The plant represents a point of accumulation and relaunch, placed halfway up the hill, of the water raised by another station located downstream, to distribute water to domestic users located at the highest altitudes, otherwise difficult to reach
with a single system lifting.
The plant operates completely automatically, depending on the request of the user and the availability of guaranteed water from the valley, with remote supervision of the general system of the Manager.
The realization of the new accumulation tank, integrated with all the equipment needed for water distribution, is part of the general project to modernize and upgrade the southern area's drinking water distribution system in Vicenza’s province,

with a refined and reliable management as well as of pleasant appearance.
