Our first 90 years

90 years and still going strong: this is how we could summarise our history.

We were established to bring water to the homes of the Milanese: with this goal, on 27 February 1928 a group of municipalities formed the Consortium for Drinking Water (Consorzio per l’Acqua Potabile, CAP) of the municipalities of the Seveso basin.

Today the CAP Group is the first national mono-utility, and we can confidently claim that the mission has been successfully carried out.

Our scope has expanded: CAP Group, a public limited company owned by local authorities, is the main water service management company in the territory of the Metropolitan City of Milan and some municipalities in the provinces of Monza and Brianza, Pavia, Varese, Como.

We currently guarantee the integrated water service to over 2 million inhabitants, manage the assets of networks and systems, plan and implement investments and routine and extraordinary maintenance works.
