Purpose

Valdeinfierno RESERVOIR

Purpose

The construction of the Valdeinfierno reservoir is an improvement in the system of control of the River Luchena-Guadalentín, and therefore also in the contribution of the river to the water available for irrigation in the municipalities of Lorca and Totana. It is used mainly in the supply of water for irrigation, but in addition it is useful as a defence against flooding occurring in the basin of the River Luchena.
