Morrón Reservoir

Purpose.

The purpose of the dam is to laminate the floods of the basin, characterised by a high intensity of rainfalls and a short concentration time.

Through the construction of this dam, it is possible to avoid flows which would add to the ones of the Judío watercourse in case of a flood occurred by this basin (a fan of watercourses and small ones concur to the point where the limited zone is located) and, on the other hand, it would protect the uncontrolled action of the waters both in the Jumilla district of the La Estacada and to its adjustable and production zone.
