Rodeos Reservoir

Purpose.

The function of Los Rodeos Reservoir is that of flood abatement, its usual level being the same as or lower than the level of the scour outlets, and so the reservoir is functionally empty outside flood events.

The River Mula is a tributary on the right of the Segura river.

The graph enclosed shows an outline of the dams existing in the Mula river basin, where it can be seen that upstream from Los Rodeos Reservoir we have Pliego Reservoir and Doña Ana Reservoir – also as a retarding basin – and La Cierva Reservoir, and that there are no dams downstream.
