The province of Rome is also in line with this negative trend, where water pressure has currently been reduced in the pipelines of 5 municipalities. Also rivers and basins in Lazio continue to decline dramatically, the Aniene has halved flow, the Tiber is at its lowest level in recent years, the Sacco is increasingly dry.
