Sustainable Solutions for Salzburg’s Water Supply
- Created by Michael Thomas, Andreas Wanda
After the prospective end of the heat wave of the summer of 2018, the Dachverband Salzburger Wasserversorger [Salzburg Water Utilities Association] (DSWV) is reporting a considerable precipitation deficit. Some measuring stations have been short 100 to 200 liters/m2 of rain in the last 40 days.
Almost every day, experts from Moser Wasser, a partner company of TÜV AUSTRIA Group, go out to develop new sources and help to get the precarious water shortage under control.
Because, whether as drinking water for its inhabitants as well as millions of guests each year, as bathing water, as water for artificial snow-making on ski slopes or as an important element of agriculture, water plays a big role in Salzburg.
Through water exploration and development, the team headed by Moser Wasser CEOs Alfred Moser and Thomas Fleischanderl determines the water supply available in the Salzburg mountains. The team of experts is made up of hydraulic engineers, well-masters, chemists, biologists and geologists.
Thomas Fleischanderl: “Confronting changes in the climate, sustainable solutions are also needed in the area of water supply as a substantial contribution to environmental protection. At our Competence Center, we provide expert and completely product-neutral advice, develop the legally, technically and economically best solution and supervise projects up to their inspection and approval by public authorities.”
