- Integral Water Cycle Councillor, Elisa Valía visits the site to see how the water table drainage system works
- This action will provide water to local irrigation channels for several months
Valencia, 19 May 2021 – The construction of the Casal España Arena de València complex – developed by Licampa 1617 S.L., a holding company of Juan Roig, created expressly to build a sustainable Arena in the city of Valencia – begins with extracting water that will be redirected to irrigation channels near the site for several months. The Integral Water Cycle Councillor, Elisa Valía, visited the site accompanied by the project’s technical director, Víctor Ferré, to see how the water table drainage system works.
The construction of the Arena, located on a lot of approximately 21,500 square metres on Ángel Villena, Bomber Ramon Duart and Antonio Ferrandis streets (together with the L’Alqueria del Basket and the Pavelló Font de San Lluís), will allow for hundreds of thousands of litres of water to be extracted from the water table during excavation and redirected to nearby irrigation channels. Currently, 80 cubic metres/hour of water are being redirected. The project is expected to be able to supply this southern farming area for approximately 15 to 17 months.
