| Counselor Antonio Luengo visits the municipality and explains that the works guarantee "a better operation of the plant, increased capacity of lamination of flows or the reduction of reliefs when there are episodes of rain "| Emphasize the work of emptying and adapting rafts, which has allowed the sealing of one lagoon and conditioning of another for use as a WWTP regulation tank. The regional government is carrying out work to improve the purification and sanitation systems of the Bullas WWTP, which has a direct impact on "a better operation of the plant, the increase in lamination capacity of flows, the optimization of the processes, as well as the reduction of relief when there are episodes of rain.
" This was reported by the Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and the Environment, Antonio Luengo, after visiting the municipality today. In total, the investment made by ESAMUR amounts to 1 million euros "as a result of the regional government's commitment to the use and reuse of water resources as the best policy for saving and efficiency, as well as the best tool to do against climate change, "added Luengo," for which it is necessary to maintain a continuous commitment to innovation and application of technology to treatment processes.
" "The Region of Murcia continues to be a pioneer and exemplary in the treatment and use that is given to water, from collection systems, through sanitation treatments and reuse that allows giving a second life to scarce resources in the southeast Spain and purify 110 hm3 annually with a removal rate of 98.9% ", explained the counselor.
Currently the Community has 98 wastewater treatment stations and 56 pumping stations The first of the works carried out, and completed last May, has been the expansion of the dehydration process of the plant, for which a dehydrating screw has been installed.
The investment has amounted to 354,242 euros and has allowed, thanks to the application of the latest technological advances, to modernize the equipment to extract the driest sludge and make it easier to transport it to be reused as agricultural fertilizer. Secondly, the Community has allocated 619,299 euros in the emptying and adaptation of the rafts, which has allowed, for example, the sealing of one lagoon and conditioning of another for use as a regulation tank for the WWTP.
The works, which will be completed in the next few days, will prevent relief from occurring, especially when there are episodes of rain, and it will ensure that the plant operates regularly while having more capacity to laminate flows, which will facilitate water purification during these periods.
