But what does drinking Tap Water mean?
Tap water is at home, familiar and indispensable for our lives, yet many differences remain when we use it to drink. Water to be drinkable, not only must not contain micro-organisms and parasites, or other substances, in quantities or concentrations such as to represent a potential danger to human health, but must not exceed even certain maximum values of substances not exactly harmful to the health.
The law in this regard is very strict. Drinking Tap Water is regulated by D.P.R. n ° 236/1998 and by the legislative decrees num. 31/2001 and num. 27/2002, which derive from European directives that have imposed very strict requirements. It is a common opinion that the quality of tap water is lower than that of bottled water. The analytical data provided by the laboratories of companies in the water sector and ASL, tell us that tap water is of good quality, with a dose of mineral salts and concentrations of various dissolved substances always within the limits set by current legislation and that it has nothing to envy to the water in bottles. The checks concern all the municipalities served by local water.
Capital Acque offers a service for the personalization of good network water through its equipment, capable of cooling and gasing tap water, without altering its organoleptic characteristics. The proposed service is suitable to meet the needs of individuals, offices, companies, restaurants and public administrations.
Today, from its headquarters in Bernareggio (MB), it operates throughout Lombardy boasting a strong interaction with local authorities – proposing some innovative projects such as the modern Houses of Water. The company has also received the “Environment Friendly Friend Innovation” award for the activity of reducing the environmental impact deriving from the use of network water.
