The management of water resources is an environmental issue to which we have dedicated expertise and attention, following an undertaking to become entirely self-sufficient in the provision of water, through the construction of a series of independently managed wells which fulfill the hygiene/sanitary, fire control and “industrial” needs of both airports. The principal water sources utilized are the aquifers, to which the 12 wells located at Malpensa and the 8 wells located at Linate are linked. For Malpensa, the aquifer has a depth of approx. 51 meters (water table measures carried out on the G and L wells), while for Linate the aquafer has a depth of approx. 5 meters. The water drawn from wells at the airport sites of Malpensa and Linate are distributed for consumption through internal aqueducts.
Water consumption (m3)
Note: 2015 and 2016 data does not include SEA Prime.
The chemical/physical and quantitative control, in addition to the consumption rationalization activities, ensure the highest level of attention to this important common resource. Our water supply comes from 12 wells at Malpensa Airport and 8 at Linate Airport, independently managed and meeting the sanitary, fire prevention and industrial needs of both airports. The water drawn from wells at the airport sites of Malpensa and Linate are distributed for consumption through internal aqueducts.
The data describes the water needs of the airports (including various uses, such as site works, etc.), which are stable at 1,350,000 to 1,500,000 cubic meters/year at Linate and 2,400,000 to 2,600,000 cubic meters/year at Malpensa.
