The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Affairs has completed work on the general sewers and the new Ribeira Wastewater Treatment Plant in A Coruña. The work was carried out on behalf of the Ministry by state-owned company Aguas de las Cuencas de España (Acuaes).
The plant, now at the testing stage, prior to commissioning and entering into operation, was visited by Government Sub-delegate in A Coruña, Jorge Atán; the CEO of Acuaes, Aránzazu Vallejo; the Mayor of Ribeira, Manuel Ruiz, and the Regional Minister of the Environment and Territorial Planning of the Autonomous Community of Galicia, Beatriz Mato.
The facilities will benefit a population equivalent of 32,500 in the urban centre of Ribeira, the town of Aguiño and the urban centres of Ameixida, Revuelta and Castiñeras in A Coruña.
The work undertaken encompassed the construction of the WWTP, a subsea outfall of 1,077 metres in length, seven stormwater tanks and 13.6 kilometres of pipelines.
