The Andalusian Regional Government invests 7.5 million euros in emergency works to supply the Almanzora Valley.

The Regional Ministry of Agriculture has reported on these works in the Council of Government this Tuesday.

The Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development has informed the Governing Council of the emergency works in the province of Almeria, with the aim of alleviating the effects of the drought. The initiative, which consists of improving the guarantee of supply in the municipalities of the Almanzora Valley, involves an investment of 7.5 million euros.

The Regional Ministry has informed the Governing Council of the emergency declaration of the execution of the works to improve the guarantee of supply to the municipalities of the Almanzora Valley with resources from the Cuevas del Almanzora Reservoir and the Seawater Desalination Plant (IDAM) in Carboneras.

In this case, the investment by the Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development amounts to just over 7.5 million euros and will benefit a total population of 132,000 inhabitants.

This action will consist of the improvement of the pumping system in series using the existing installations of the El Saltador-Presa de Cuevas del Almanzora pipeline, as well as its connection with the Negratín-Almanzora water transfer pipeline to raise the water demand to a pond in the municipality of Tíjola.

The Andalusian Government has highlighted the critical situation in which the Cuevas reservoir finds itself, at only 7.8% of its capacity. In addition to this, on 7 July the transfer from the Negratín was interrupted, which meant a reduction of seven cubic hectometres in the supply to the area.

This action planned to guarantee the water supply in the Almanzora Valley has been possible thanks to the Drought Decree approved by the Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development.
