We treat water throughout each stage of its life cycle, making it suitable for human consumption, supplying the population, purifying waste and industrial water and applying water reuse technologies.


We protect water at every stage of its life cycle to ensure the provision of quality water and its sustainable use. We are pursuing the goal of access for all to this essential commodity, as set out in the 2030 Agenda.

As a company, we have always had a sustainable approach to managing the water cycle comprehensively: we optimise the consumption of natural resources, minimise polluting resources in water treatment processes, maintain management standards for waste water treatment, and undertake awareness campaigns for the end consumer.

The integral water cycle begins by collecting raw water and purifying it in a DWTP prior to final distribution. During this process, water storage is maintained and controlled and the distribution networks are carefully managed. The final stage of the cycle is treatment at the WWTP followed by a return to the natural environment or reuse with minimal environmental impact

Our professionals continuously analyse the water's composition to ensure the highest quality in the end user's tap. Similarly, we systematically evaluate the supply and sanitation networks. We thus achieve high performance rates in cities where we manage the water service, using the latest technologies to detect and repair possible leaks.

Discover the phases of the end-to-end water cycle in the following video:

  1. Water collection from different sources
  2. Desalination: Removal of salt and other minerals from sea water or brackish water to make it fit for irrigation or human consumption
  3. Purification: Water treatment for human consumption
  4. Distribution: Maintenance of the water distribution network
  5. Water supply to populations and agricultural irrigation
  1. Maintenance of the sanitation network
  2. Water purification: Removing pollutants from waste water so as to achieve optimum quality to return the water to the environment
  3. Water reuse: Tertiary treatment for use in agriculture, urban parks and other activities
We protect water at every stage of its life cycle to ensure the provision of quality water and its sustainable use.
