Guadiaro-Majaceite transfer

Spain

Description

The works entails construction of a new water intake on the Guadiaro River. For this project a connection tunnel was constructed along with a weir complete with buttresses.

This has created an overflow from the Guadiaro River on the rainy Mediterranean coast, to the river Barrida, a tributary of the river Majaceite on the drier, Atlantic coast.
