The site is transparent and entirely open to the public, a guided tour of the plant is offered to discover the challenges posed by water and the water treatment process. Thanks to a clear and simple explanation of the process, visitors can gain an insight into all technical operations and follow the path taken by the water. The installations are also regularly visited by international delegations from all over the world.
