The storm tank has a capacity of 6,000 m3 and the rolling raft has a storage capacity of 60,000 m3 planned to mitigate the effects of torrential rains and ensure its subsequent treatment
The Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Environment awarded today the project of the storm water treatment system of the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) of Torre Pacheco, which involves the construction of a 6,000 storm tank m3 and a rolling raft with storage capacity of 60,000 m3, to mitigate the effects of torrential rains and their subsequent treatment, which will prevent the discharge of stormwater directly to the Rambla del Albujón.
To start the execution of the project it is necessary that the City of Torre Pacheco provide the certificate of availability of the land, a procedure that has been formally requested in writing twice (in April and October).
The future infrastructure will derive water to the environmental tank through a casket that has a 10 cm thick sandpit and grating.
At the entrance to the environmental tank there is a fine sieve with a capacity of 7,200 m3 / h and a dump cleaning system.
The rolling raft has a reinforced concrete floor for mechanical cleaning and an EDAR discharge system of 1 + 1 pumps for the treatment of stored water.
At present, the WWTP does not have a system that minimizes the harmful effects generated by the discharge of urban collectors when it rains, so the wastewater from the urban core of Torre Pacheco is grouped and taken to the treatment plant by two collectors ( North and South), and two other collectors per drive (Urb. Mar Menor Golf and La Puebla).
The work is completed with the connection pipes between elements, electrical installations, automatisms and auxiliary installations, as well as the urbanization and fencing of the constructed surfaces.
The winner is Arpo Empresa Constructora, SA, has an execution period of 12 months and a budget of 3,446,273 euros.
