Project: Environmental Impact Study of the implementation of water extraction wells for irrigation purposes

Location: Murcia, Spain

Customer: Irrigation community

In accordance with the Ley 21/2013 de diciembre, de evaluación ambiental (about environmental assessment), the extraction performance of 3 hm3 must undergo the Evaluación de Impacto Ambiental Ordinaria (Ordinary Environmental Impact Assessment procedure), since the total volume of ongoing extractions originated in the aquifer in which they are located exceeds the threshold of 10 hm3 indicated in the Appendix I, Group 7.b of the aforementioned law.

In addition to the Environmental Impact Study, a hydrogeological study has been carried out to foresee the effect of the planned actions.
