The 50 year history of Lotti is a fascinating journey through rivers, lakes, canals, aqueducts and lagoons. At the heart of our work is always that water that "benefits all things and does not compete with them".
WATER is the most valuable resource for human life, for the socio-economic growth of communities and for the protection of ecosystems.
It is an asset to be safeguarded and protected and should be made available where it is needed in the quantity and quality required.
Water is not always friendly: in some regions of the world it is abundant or disappears altogether, according to the seasons - in other regions sometimes overwhelms cities, very often carries poisons.
The major challenges that countries face today, and that we face every day in our work, are those related to the accessibility of water resources, the efficiency of the basins and major urban and regional networks, the preservation of the environment and health through wastewater management.
Access to water is still an insurmountable handicap for the development of rural areas, and it is crucial to strengthen the resilience of countries and communities in the face of climate change and volatility in the prices of food and energy.
Maintaining reliable long-term water supplies is critical for supporting public health, quality of life, and economic activity.
As society’s waste stream grows larger and more complex, preservation of public health and the environment requires thoughtful innovation in wastewater engineering and treatment processes.
And even when the study of water is placed in the service of other projects (roads, bridges and railways) an efficient water management is always the goal of our Water Resources Sector.
The challenge of a sustainable land resource management is to balance between the land-use demands critical for development – infrastructures, access to natural resources, urban planning – and the safeguard of the environment and prevention of land degradation, that in rural areas can represent a downward spiral with respect to poverty.
When planning or designing new infrastructures, we strive to use a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive approach that considers the human-environment system including soil, what is on and in it, along with how all of these respond to environmental, societal and economic modifications.
With our long-lasting experience in projects of irrigation, rural development and conservation of the soil we were bearers of safety and improvements in the quality of life for many rural regions of the world.
Our specialized studies within the hydrogeological field address the delicate problem of the environmental vulnerability of soils and of their groundwaters.
