Supplying water to the distribution system in the city of Albacete, its industrial sites and their adjacent urban centres.

Design and construction

The works include “water intake works” in the Tajo-Segura Transfer canal, a dam of 1 Hm3 for the regulation of raw water, a gravity collection stretch with a diameter of 1200 mm and a intermediary pumping station to pump raw water into a second tank of 10,000 m3, next there is the treatment plant with a treated water tank of 50,000 m3 and a pumping station to the tanks of the distribution network of Albacete.

The treatment Plant has 2 treatment lines, each 0.5 m3/s with a preozonisation area, mixing chamber, sedimentation, intermediate ozonisation, sand filtration. Additionally, the treatment is completed with a sludge line with centrifugal dehydration. The following can be emphasised as one of the most significant aspects: Disinfection using ozone and catchment in the transfer canal
