The Estepona Town Hall has informed this Friday that the works of the new drinking water tank of the city, which is being built in the Las Mesas area, are in their final stretch after reaching 90 percent of their execution, so the new water infrastructure will be finished in the next few weeks.

This new infrastructure, which will have a capacity for 15,000 cubic meters, will significantly expand the possibility of storing drinking water for the municipality, since it will multiply by 15 the capacity of the current existing tank in the area. In this way, the city will be endowed with greater water independence and improvements in the networks of the area between Avenida Andalucía and the area of ​​La Cala.

The new water infrastructure, which will be finished in the next few weekswill extend the supply guarantee for Estepona, covering the needs in times of maximum demand.

The work, which is being carried out by the Consistory and Hidralia, the company that manages the integral water cycle in Estepona, began in January 2022. With a investment of more than 3.7 million eurosincluded in the infrastructure improvement fee, the new deposit will have two tanks of 7,500 cubic meters each to improve its operation and maintenance.

Jobs include the installation of the entrance and exit networks of the warehouse. During construction, 270 tons of steel and 5,000 cubic meters of concrete have been used.

This project is included in the supply master plan for Estepona, which aims to carry out works worth 22.7 million euros in the water network until 2030, thus guaranteeing supply throughout the municipality and improving quality in areas experiencing the highest population growth.

The new deposit will take on even more importance when the next action planned by the City Council and Hidralia is carried out, and which will consist of the installation of a supply pipeline which will allow the networks of the eastern part of the municipality (Selwo) to be interconnected with those of the urban area and the western part (Buenas Noches urbanization limit).
