Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Fonts pròpies
S'anomenen com a tals a les captacions d'aigua efectuades directament del medi, ja siguin superficials o subterrànies. És a dir aquells proveïments d'aigua que no han estat subministrats per un operador."

Methodological aspects

The Catalan Water Agency (ACA) manages and plans the water cycle, with a vision of integrated water systems, taking into account the balance of all ecosystems. Water becomes a basic structural and functional element to the environment and life. This management must be compatible with the growing demand for permanence, universality and immediacy of the citizens of an advanced society, and ensure quality and good service.

Water consumption, both by domestic uses and economic activities (industry, services and others) is obtained on the basis of the invoicing presented by the agents that supply it.

Current Territorial Distribution

At present, Catalonia is divided into 41 counties, 1 singular territorial entity (Aran) and 8 areas of the Territorial Plan, according to the latest territorial changes, which affect the areas of El Penedès and the Central Counties, Aran and El Moianès.
