A RICH VEGETATION
WOODS and HILLS
Enchanting frame to the two MONTICCHIO
LAKES.
GREAT LAKE: 0.4 km² ; SMALL LAKE: 0.1
km ²
From Big Lake the waters flow into the
RIVER OFANTO, through an emissary that
in summer is often dry.
The lakes are fed by SEVERAL SMALL
SPRINGS. They look like two gems that,
during the day, reflect the glows of the
green nature moulding and confusing
themselves in it and, during the night,
create a very evocative landscape.
Wild nature, wonderful scenery, right
environment for explorations.
Taste LIGHTLY SPARKLING WATER that
naturally springs from the streams.
Monticchio Mineral Water
Leggera: Low in mineral content
• Category: LOW MINERAL IN CONTENT,
STILL
• Area of production: ITALY – MONTICCHIO
• Figures: fixed residue 380
• Appearance: It is a low mineral content
water of VOLCANIC ORIGIN, ideal for the
WELLBEING and the HEALTH of all the family,
it is particularly suggested for babies
because of its LOW CONTENT OF NITRATES,
synonym of purity, and it is indicated
for adults because of its effectiveness
in CORRECTING THE ACIDOSIS OF MUSCULAR
EXERTION and it is ideal for elderly people
because of its DIURETIC EFFECTS.
Monticchio Mineral Water
Gaudianello: Sparkling

Category: LOW IN MINERAL CONTENT, SPARKLING
Area of production: ITALY – MELFI
Figures: fixed residue 1125
Appearance: the right balance of mineral
salts and the VOLCANIC MICROEFFERVESCENCE
confer an agreeable and thirst-quenching
taste to Gaudianello water. Its optimal
relationships between CALCIUM, MAGNESIUM,
SODIUM, POTASSIUM, guarantee a correct
recovery from the loss of mineral salts caused
by perspiration. For this reason it was
CHOSEN BY THE
ITALIAN NATIONAL SWIMMING TEAM as
daily SOURCE OF BALANCE AND WELL-BEING.
Water Pollution
• TWO BROAD CATEGORIES OF WATER
POLLUTION:
• “POINT SOURCE” — occurs when harmful substances
are emitted directly into a body of water: a pipe from an
industrial facility discharging effluent directly into a river.
• “NONPOINT SOURCE” — delivers pollutants indirectly
through transport or environmental change: when fertilizer
from a farm field is carried into a stream by rain (i.e. run-off).
•
•
POINT-SOURCE POLLUTION is usually MONITORED and
REGULATED, at least in Western countries, though political
factors may complicate this monitoring activity.
NONPOINT SOURCES are much more DIFFICULT TO
MONITOR AND CONTROL, and today they account for the
MAJORITY OF CONTAMINANTS IN STREAMS AND
LAKES.
San Giuliano Dam
San Giuliano dam, born under the
pressure of the economic aid program of the
Marshall Plan is one of
the major works of the
Consortium of Bradano and Metaponto.
I’t’s 79 meters high at the highest point.
The length reaches 314 meters.
The dam of San Giuliano allows an
accumulation of 107 million cubic meters.
water is under a basin 1631 km
The main channel, 31 km long, is
designed for a maximum of 9 Mk / sec.,
and extends for 30.8 km before forking in
San Marco di Bernalda in the branches of San
Marco and Venelle Girifalco; this
last intended to supply the irrigation
network of Stornara and Tara, in the
province of Taranto.
Since 1976, the dam of San Giuliano it’s an
regional natural Oasis;
Since 1989, it’s a WWF oasis in Italy.
Dams
• A dam is a BARRIER.
• It generally PREVENTS WATER TO
•
•
•
•
FLOW into specific land regions.
HYDROPOWER and PUMPEDSTORAGE HYDROELECTRICITY are
often used in conjunction with dams to
provide generate electricity.
COLLECT WATER to store and
distribute it between locations.
Dams can be formed by HUMAN
AGENCY, NATURAL CAUSES, or even
by the INTERVENTION OF WILDLIFE
such as beavers.
Man-made dams are typically
CLASSIFIED according to their SIZE
(height), INTENDED PURPOSE or
STRUCTURE.
Types of Dams
• Buttress dams
•
Gravity dams
• Arch dams
