New collector west of Albufera

Reorganisation of the hydraulic infrastructure of the kitchen garden and sewerage network of the Valencian metropolitan area
Scope of action: Cuenca Hidrográfica del Jucar
Total investments: 40,700,000 €

Description of worksState: Works in progress

The action aims to reduce inputs of organic matter and inorganic nutrients currently discharged to Lake Albufera of Valencia. These inputs originate as a result of discharges of stormwater from the western collector located in the northwest of Albufera and from the pollution that the irrigation infrastructure receives as it passes through the towns, and whose surpluses reach Albufera. The project involves modifying the layout of the Favara ditch to disconnect waste water discharges from the network of ditches together with a number of improvements to the west collector in order to prevent uncontrolled discharges during rain events.

The work is in progress.
