Teu­lada and Ben­i­tachell wa­ter guar­an­tee

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

By Jo Pugh THE TEU­LADA and Ben­i­tachell wa­ter con­sor­tium has taken a huge step to­wards guar­an­tee­ing sup­ply to both towns for the next ten years.

Late last week, works com­menced to ex­pand the ca­pac­ity of the de­sali­na­tion plants to ac­com­mo­date an ex­tra 8,800 cu­bic me­tres of wa­ter.

The de­sali­na­tion plant lo­cated in Teu­lada Mo­raira will in­crease ca­pac­ity by 6,000 cu­bic me­tres, from 5,000 to 11,000. The plant in Ben­i­tachell will rise from 3,000 cu­bic me­tres to 5,800.

“With th­ese im­por­tant in­vest­ments we can guar­an­tee fu­ture wa­ter in both towns, which ex­ceeds our first ex­pec­ta­tions.

"Even so, res­i­dents must be aware that ev­ery drop mat­ters. That is why we con­tinue to launch aware­ness cam­paigns that, with­out a doubt have also con­trib­uted, to­gether with the ac­tions and im­prove­ment works, to the ef­fec­tive and rapid re­sponse that the con­sor- tium has given us in record time since the 2016 drought.” said the may­ors of Teu­lada and Ben­i­tachell, Car­los Linares and Josep Fe­me­nia, in a joint state­ment.

In ad­di­tion, the con­sor­tium will dou­ble the ca­pac­ity of the ‘Senija II’ well and the ‘Canor I’ and will in­cor­po­rate the ‘Les Fonts’ well to the sup­ply, to fur­ther in­crease the flows.

Other im­prove­ment works that will be un­der­taken will be the in­stal­la­tion of new equip­ment at the Canor well, the Les Fonts pipe­line, the ex­pan­sion of Ben­i­tachell 1 and the pipe­lines which con­duct wa­ter to the Ben­i­tachell de­sali­na­tion plant.

The works will cost around €4 mil­lion.
