MEDISS presents the Sardinian Water Board, Italy
ENAS - Ente Acque della Sardegna (Sardinian Water Board) is the Sardinian operating entity that manages the Sardinia's multi-sectorial water system composed of various water collection and distribution works.
Established in 2006, the Board’s activities are based on the principle that water is a precious and limited resource with enormous environmental, cultural, and economic value to be protected. In this regard, the Board has been working towards the achievement of the highest standards possible for the water delivered. Its efficiency can be correctly maintained through one of its specialized structured - the current Delivered Water Quality Service (SQAE) - provided with its own laboratory equipped with avant-garde instrumentation. ENAS has designed and constructed large water infrastructures for the long-term development of the Sardinia, guaranteeing water supply to urban, agricultural and industrial areas, in a typical Mediterranean semi-arid region.

In MEDISS ENAS coordinates the activities of the Work Package 3 "Analisys and Monitoring" with the support of the technical Board of Experts (BoE).
