San Javier wastewater treatment plant puts 3,5 cubic hectometres at the disposal of irrigators (27/03/2018)

The sanitation station of San Javier reuses one hundred percent of the reclaimed water and allocates 3.5 cubic hectometres that it makes available to irrigators.

The Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Francisco Jódar, who visited the plant today with the mayor of the municipality, José Miguel Luengo, stressed that "it is also a water of excellent quality, since the plant has procedures more advanced than they exist as they are the tertiary treatment, the microfiltraje and the disinfection by means of ultraviolet rays ".

Jódar said that "the Region of Murcia is an example worldwide in water purification and reuse, as we not only have 93 treatment plants, covering 99.2 of the population, but also our treatments go much further than imposed by European regulations in this matter ".

In addition, the San Javier plant reuses up to 2.8 tons of sludge from the water treatment process, which is used for agriculture.

"This is an example of a circular economy because, in the process of water purification, we take advantage of everything: 100 percent of the resulting water is used for irrigation, but also the sludge generated in the process becomes a excellent fertilizer for agricultural activity, "said the counselor.

Specifically, these sludges are used for agriculture in the municipalities of Blanca, Campos del Río, Jumilla, Molina de Segura, Mula, Murcia, Yecla and Hellín, in Albacete.

Francisco Jódar explained that "it is a process that demonstrates the efficiency in the use of all available resources and maximum respect for the environment."
