ECO-FIMON - Ecological upgrading and tourist promotion of lake Fimon basin, Italy
The project's main objective was to demonstrate that the use of integrated phyto-depuration techniques could replace traditional water treatment systems for the reclamation of prized water settings. The project aimed to validate this hypothesis through the purification of the waters of Lake Fimon, promoting in turn the development of a more environmentally conscious small-scale tourism in the area. A further objective was to limit car access to the lake area. The project managed to install 5 phyto-depuration plants and these have demonstrated that the use of this technique can replace traditional water treatment systems. As a result the waters of the Lake were purified and pollution has been reduced by approx. 80%. This gave way to a more environmentally conscious small-scale tourism in the project area.
