In the company of various piping companies, project managers, the Puy de Dôme Departmental Council and the Water Agency, SOL SOLUTION is a member of the Water Committee of FRTP AURA, as part of its inspection activities of new sanitation networks under accreditation.

On Tuesday 21 January 2020, the Water committee met to present the study carried out on drinking water in Auvergne, to take stock of the needs of local authorities and their financial capacity, to look back on the meeting of 21/11/2019 with the Loire Bretagne water agency concerning the compacting controls on the backfill of sewerage networks under green areas and to discuss the creation of a water observatory in Auvergne.

Drinking water yield must be improved and the sewerage networks need to be renewed, this is a public health issue.  

Drought is not the only reason for the lack of water, in Auvergne as in the whole of France, the average loss rate of the water network is 20%.

In Auvergne, around 70% of communes and Etablissements Publics de Coopération intercommunale have a debt reduction capacity of less than 5%.

The finances are healthy, the means are there, a simple awareness is necessary to invest now.
