Drinking water is a valuable resource that is essential to life. We must therefore secure its continued availability and use it sparingly. When it comes to resource conservation, FMG believes in the importance of handling drinking water on the airport campus as carefully and economically as possible. Where drinking water quality is not needed, we can also use groundwater closer to the surface. We have already stopped using drinking water for cooling buildings, workshops and terminals and for watering the green spaces.
Additional savings methods
Water-saving fittings are used in terminals to reduce drinking water consumption. The water used in carwashes is reused several times after treatment. Operation of the fire training facility predominantly uses rainwater that has been collected from paved areas at the training facility and then stored for extinguishing fires. Above all, quarternary groundwater near the surface from own wells is increasingly used to clean roads and air operations surfaces, to dampen building site equipment and for air conditioning in buildings, instead of using tertiary groundwater from deeper groundwater levels.
