We strive to ensure sustainablewater use
Since 1994, Murcia has had an alternative to the drinking water network for the irrigation of gardens, road cleaning and other ornamental and sports uses.
This network consists of a number of boreholes, elevator facilities, tanks and general pipeline networks to distribute and supply groundwater.
|Volume of groundwater use||950.000 m3/year|
|Nominal extraction flow||176 litres/second|
|Nominal installed power||205 Kw|
|Green areas irrigated||65.5 %|
