Orta Reloaded (Italian version) from Martin Atkin on Vimeo.
The rebirth of Lake Orta dates from the 1970s when tougher regulations and improved technology greatly reduced industrial pollution. In 1989-90, scientists carried out a daring and ground-breaking experiment, by pumping 15,000 tonnes of crushed limestone into the water to restore the natural pH balance.
Today the water quality is good, fish and other aquatic creatures are returning, the water industry is an important international market player, and the lake itself attracts tens of thousands of tourists each year.
