The Structural model of the Veneto Region Water supply systems (MOSAV) is a special plan that identifies the guidelines of the main waterworks structures necessary to ensure the proper drinking water supply in the whole Veneto region, as well as the criteria and methods for the protection of water resources, and the protection and recharge of groundwater. MOSAV concerns the basins of the Po and the Adige rivers and the watershed of Alto Adriatico sea, in the Veneto Region.
The Plan develops a structural scheme of the main water supply
pipelines, and points out the specific areas of water withdrawal from groundwater reservoirs. MOSAV consists in a closed-grid pipelines system, able to grant good quality tap water, at a lower cost and with a general consistent water savings, due to the significant abatement of losses, and to the better quality of the new pipelines.
If necessary, the system grants a double direction management: it can convey water from north to south, but also viceversa, increasing the redundancy of the system against every technical or nontechnical risk.
Characteristics: average discharge to be managed: 2,550 l/s. Population served: 1,000,000 inhabitants, feeding pipelines: 403 km, diameters ranging from 500 mm to 1,400 mm (cast iron).
