With investment of around 60 million euros, the “Soria Sanitation” project encompasses the construction of a wastewater treatment plant for a population equivalent of 136,000, a 5-kilometre outfall tunnel and additional works for the incorporation of flows and the environmental recovery of the area where the current WWTP is located.
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, state-owned trading company ACUAES organised a visit to the sanitation and wastewater treatment works in Soria. The event was attended by María Rosa Cobo, CEO at ACUAES; Carlos Martínez and Gustavo Martínez, mayors of Soria and Los Rábanos, respectively; the Regional Minister for the Environment, Housing and Territorial Planning, Juan Carlos Suárez-Quiñones, and the directors of ACUAES, who met in the morning at the Provincial Government Office.
The Soria Sanitation and Wastewater Treatment project encompasses the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant, an outfall tunnel and additional works for the incorporation of flows and the environmental recovery of the area where the current wastewater treatment plant is located. When completed, the new WWTP will serve a population equivalent of 135,000 and will have an average flow of 24,000 m3/d.
The action is co-funded by the ERDF, within the framework of the Spanish Multi-regional Operational Programme (MOP), under the terms of a collaboration agreement entered into March 2019 by ACUAES and the Municipal Councils of Soria and Los Rábanos. This agreement provides for a financial contribution from the Regional Ministry of Development and Environment of Castilla y León.
