  • Satisfies the drinking water needs of significant districts of the region;
  • Modernize, upgrade and rationalize the existing aqueduct network in the area;
  • It uses the water resources accumulated by the Campolattaro reservoir in a multiple, rational and sustainable way;
  • Eliminates and / or minimizes the current withdrawals from groundwater wells and sources that widely serve the existing aqueducts;
  • Eliminates the energy and environmental costs currently required by the lifting systems present in the existing aqueduct network;
  • Reduces the energy and environmental costs necessary for water purification with the simultaneous construction of the hydroelectric plant;
  •  Significantly reduces water losses from the existing drinking and irrigation network.
