The area of southern France is impacted by high growth in use of ground water. This has put the resource in high demand. Water managers in the area are looking for opportunities to increase water use efficiency and reduction in total water use demand by all entities in this area.

The area of southern France is impacted by high growth in use of ground water. This has put the resource in high demand. Water managers in the area are looking for opportunities to increase water use efficiency and reduction in total water use demand by all entities in this area. This affects Ipsen sites located in Signes and L'Isle sur La Sorgue (ISS). Projects are underway to reduce the amount of water required by the ISS site in particular as it is a large user of water in its direct and indirect manufacturing operations. There are projects underway that will reduce the water use levels at the site as well as to reuse or reinject used and treated water back into the acquifer (recharge opportunity). This will affect the entire ground water basin and will significantly support local ground water supply availability.
The L'Isle-sur-La-Sorgue site is implementing and will continue to implement projects to reduce water consumption and improve water efficiency with a minimum reduction of 30% expected by 2020.
