The consortium members are all the owners of properties (land and premises), included in the land reclamation district, a part of the territory identifies by the Veneto Region.

The expenses for the maintenance, operation and guarding of reclamation works are supported by the consortium members and are distributed on the basis of the benefit derived from the works and land reclamation activities, in accordance with the criteria set out in the plan approved by the Veneto Region.
The Plan provides proper exercise of the power to tax.
Every five years, the taxpayers elect the Assembly of the Consortium which is composed of 30 properties of owners or land falling within the district, which elect the Board, the President, the Vice President
