(ANSA) – UDINE, FEBRUARY 17 – An “anomalous” consumption, equal to about 100 thousand liters of water per day, by the nomad camp in via Monte Sei Busi in Udine, was reported by Cafc, the company that manages the water service , to the municipal administration of the Friulian capital. This was announced by the Municipality itself today, reporting that this morning the mayor Pietro Fontanini carried out an inspection on the spot, with an administration official to check the situation.

“The nomad camp is located on a state-owned territory – said the mayor – but it is the Municipality that pays the utilities for water. The Cafc – he continued – has sent us a communication to denounce abnormal water consumption in recent months . It took a few minutes to ascertain the veracity of the report: the counter hand was traveling at a crazy speed. We also documented everything with some videos – he added – to allow the offices to make the appropriate assessments and projections with respect to possible costs “.

The mayor then pointed out that “when fully operational, the nomad camp costs us between 24,000 and 26,000 euros a year for water alone.

With the surge in the last two months, it is reasonable to think that costs could increase further, also in light of the state of deterioration of the plants “.

Fontanini finally announced that he intends to contact the Cafc to find a solution. “Enel, for example, has made the meters payable to individual users – he said – and each family pays its own electricity bill.

We need to find a way to replicate the same model with water. We are already struggling with the expensive bills – he concluded – therefore it is surreal and grotesque to spend crazy amounts for a nomad camp that consumes water as if it were a sports citadel with Olympic swimming pools “. (ANSA).
