Wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and other facilities related to water treatment are often located in isolated places where such structures are the highest point and, therefore, the preferred point for the lightning strike.
The dimensions of the facilities related to the treatment and distribution of water make it essential to carry out a detailed risk analysis to protect the most critical points against direct and indirect impacts of lightning, without the cost being excessive.
