Comprehensive management of the Segarra-Garrigues Segarra-Garrigues system (Lleida)

Comprehensive management of the Segarra-Garrigues Segarra-Garrigues system (Lleida)

The Segarra-Garrigues system encompasses 70,000 ha of irrigation land in the L’Urgell, El Pla d’Urgell, La Segarra, La Noguera, Les Garrigues and El Segrià regions.

Its distribution infrastructure is made up of catchments, connection pipes, reservoirs, filtering and pumping stations, distribution networks, irrigation hydrants and remote control and automation elements. The irrigation area is divided into 15 sectors.

The company created to operate the system, whose majority shareholder is Aqualogy, is required to maintain the irrigation infrastructure in good condition throughout the operation period, undertaking to make any and all investments and replacements necessary.

Irrigation management for the Algerri-Balaguer Canal Irrigation Association

Irrigation management for the Algerri-Balaguer Canal Irrigation Association

In the 1990s the Algerri-Balaguer Canal Irrigation Association modernised its irrigation area to improve the productivity of its farms, in an area with a long agricultural and cattle farming tradition.

In 1997, with the system fully pressurised and with 6,000 m³/ha/year of surface water, it commissioned the comprehensive management of the system to Aqualogy.

Since then, Aqualogy has been responsible for the comprehensive management of the facilities of the irrigation association (an irrigation area of 8,000 ha), the canal, the pumping stations, the reservoirs, the distribution networks, etc. This includes operation and maintenance, commercial management and the management of irrigators.
