The MM GIS platform

To support the various MM functions over a web-linked intranet, the IWS Cartographic Portal was created to allow operators to access cartographic and detailed information from their work stations, also through the use of simple operations (e.g. pan, zoom, info,
measurements, print, etc.).

Water loss management

Water loss is one of the principal problems that must be addressed for proper, sustainable management of the water supply system. Water losses negatively impact the environment (wastage of a potentially limited resource), operator finances (non-revenue water), energy use, traffic (excavations to repair leaks, etc.) and society.

Trenchless technology

Thanks to the competency it has developed in designing and executing trenchless services, and with the research support of the Politecnico di Milano, MM provides technical consulting services and takes part in regional and national committees in an effort to develop and promote legislation to better define, plan and execute works using a “no-dig” approach.
