These are the indications from the Inland Revenue website:

The bonus will be granted until the fund is exhausted in the set amount of 1,000 euro per person. To apply for it, it will be necessary to wait for a time and manner that will be established by the Ministry of the Environment with a special decree, probably by February.
The incentive was created to encourage sustainable behaviour aimed at the responsible use of a very precious resource whose accessibility and limited availability we often forget.
Saving water is one of those small daily actions that each of us can take to help protect our planet's resources and build a more harmonious relationship between man and the environment.
Of all European countries, Italy is the country with the highest rate of water withdrawal for potable use, an enormous gap that is partly explained by problems with the distribution network and partly by attitudes that are still not very virtuous and aware of the managementone of this resource.
What can we do at home to avoid unnecessary water wastage?
We leave you with 7 practical tips that will allow you to immediately reduce consumption and contribute to water saving:
- Choose a dual flush cistern (6 and 12 litres);
- Take showers instead of baths, 20 liters versus 150 liters of water;
- Turn off the water jet in the shower or when brushing your teeth;
- Keep fruit and vegetables soaking to wash them and not under running water.
- Use washing machines and dishwashers only when fully loaded;
- Water the plants with collected rainwater;
- Repair toilet and faucet leaks and put breakers on faucets.
