ALICANTE’S Provincial Council recently unveiled a new €240,000 well – Corralet II – in Benigembla.

The well will ensure the supply of water in the municipality and neighbouring Benissa and Senija, where residents have faced restrictions for several hours each day during the high summer seasons.

The well will pump a maximum of 100 litres per second at peak times however it has been ecologically built to operate at a reduced capacity at off-peak times.

President of the Diputacion Cesar Sanchez said the well “is very important for the people of Benigembla, Benissa and Senija –  especially for farmers in the area who will now be able to water their fields safely.”

He added that the well also provides reassurance to the tourism sector, bringing an end to the droughts suffered in previous years, especially during the high summer seasons.

A similar well is planned in Alcalali and will cost nearly €400,000, financed by the Provincial Council.

The two wells will form part of a series of €2 million worth of actions approved by the provincial government as they invest to ensure the supply of water – €800,000 is being spent to fix leaks in Beniarbeig, Benimeli, Gata de Gorgos, Jalon and Lliber and €140,000 is being spent to expand the Parcent plant that services Alcalali, Jalon and Lliber.
