LA NUCIA has begun the second phase of its Cami de la Monja water supply programme.
The first phase involved constructing a 1.3-kilometre pipeline to replace the existing one which crosses gullies and privately-owned land, complicating access for maintenance and repairs.
The project has been completed with two pumps that will propel water from Cami de la Monja up to the Copet water deposit 304 metres above sea level.
The two phases of the €180,000 project will ensure a steady water supply for approximately 10,000 of La Nucia’s 20,000 residents.
“Thanks to the Municipal Hydraulics Plan, La Nucia has 84 per cent water-use efficiency, one of the highest in the Valencian Community,” said the town’s mayor Bernabe Cano.
