Welcome from the President

As President of “Confederación Hidrográfica del Segura”, and on behalf of the workers of this institution, I want to welcome those accessing this website, and to share with them the hope of this being a valuable tool for the whole society to check and communicate with.

Since its creation in 1926, the “Confederación Hidrográfica del Segura” manages a river basin which is complex and rich in subtle differences, landscapes and ways of understanding water. This institution considers it essential for the information provided to the general public and our users to be clear, easy to handle and sufficiently detailed, so that the problems we face may be approached as a whole. This is why on this website we offer historical, legal, administrative and technical data all alike, which are constantly updated, and allow us to share our work and desires with citizens, institutions and companies interested in the Segura River Basin.

The Segura River Basin covers a territory affected since time immemorial by drought periods and sporadic stormy episodes, which have forged the farsighted spirit of its people. The “Confederación Hidrográfica del Segura” has equally adapted to these special conditions, and puts together a scrupulous management of the scarce water resources available with a series of infrastructures and technological tools that help restrain the seasonal floods. And all of it mixed with the daily task of distributing the set resources to the users.

I invite you to participate with us in the exciting task of making the “Confederación Hidrográfica del Segura” a place where social, economic and environmental development can meet.



Miguel Ángel Ródenas Cañada. President.
