MAC Eau Project : ACTING TO PRESERVE WATER RESOURCES
Socio-economic development, drought, population growth, etc. Numerous factors threaten to create quantitative imbalances in water resources. That is why the MAC Eau project, under the coordination of the Gironde Département and in partnership with the SMEGREG, Mérignac Town Council and the Drinking Water Authority of Blaye (SIAEP), was launched in 2012. What are its main objectives? To protect water resources by controlling consumption and reducing leakage.
The project was funded by Europe, the Adour-Garonne Water Authority and the Nouvelle Aquitaine Regional Council and was finalised in 2017.
A closing seminar was held in the Bordeaux premises of the Regional Council on 14 December 2017.
Some one hundred participants attended the presentation of the methodology developed and the results. Various speakers shared their experience in the implementation of actions and projects on similar themes. The day was a great success and the majority of participant feedback demonstrated a genuine desire to engage in or continue these actions.
