As long-standing committed in water management, SEA has an independent approach to water supply thanks to the construction of a number of self-managed wells, meeting hygienic, sanitary, fire and "industrial" needs of both airports.
The main water sources affected by water withdrawals are the aquifers, tapped through the 12 wells located at Malpensa and the 8 wells at Linate.
At Malpensa, the aquifer is 51 metres below the surface (from the water table measurements made on wells G and L), while at Linate the aquifer is about 5 metres down. Water volumes taken from wells at Malpensa and Linate airports are distributed for consumption through internal aqueducts.
Chemical, physical and quantitative control, as well as the rationalization of consumption, guarantee the greatest attention to this important shared asset.
Water supply of our airports comes through 12 wells located at Malpensa and 8 at Linate, operated independently, meeting hygienic, sanitary, fire and industrial-level needs of both airports.
Water volumes taken from wells at Malpensa and Linate airports are distributed for consumption through internal aqueducts.
Linate's water needs have confirmed their tendency to stabilize at 1,350,000 - 1,400,000 cubic metres per year, while Malpensa's water needs, in spite of rising passenger traffic, showed a slight decrease in 2016, probably also due to less construction site needs.
