The Aragón Water Institute (Instituto Aragonés del Agua) has awarded Aqualia three contracts for operation, maintenance and upkeep of the Caspe, Tauste and Alagón WWTPs, all of which are in the province of Zaragoza. The company thus consolidates its position as the leading manager and operator of wastewater treatment plants in Aragón, where it now manages 21 WWTPs and 17 pumping stations, with a total treated water capacity of 13,766,800 m3.
These contracts follow others recently awarded in the municipalities of Borja and Magallón, also in Aragón. Daniel Mesa, Aqualia delegate in Aragón believes that “these new contracts are indicative of the confidence placed by the authorities in Aqualia as a technical collaborator for the management of the vital public service of water. This public-private partnership results in an improved quality of life for citizens”.
The company provides services to over 800,000 people living in the Autonomous community of Aragón. It manages treatment services for Zuera, Caspe, Fraga and Torrente de Cinca, water supply to Zaragoza and Corredor del Ebro, and it is responsible for water quality in Tarazona and Binefar.
