Bayco Reservoir

Purpose.

The main purpose of the dam of the Bayco watercourse is the lamination of floods produced in such a watercourse, as well as in the ones of Cepero and de Jaraba; so, the purpose is to limit the maximum floods coming to the urban core of Ontur and to the Minateda watercourse, draining in its bed.

As a consequence of this lamination of floods, it is reduced the peak of the hydrograms crossing the Minateda watercourse and going to the Camarillas reservoir, above the Mundo river, allowing such a river to transfer its floods to the Segura river with a more reduced flow, which represents the main purpose of the General Defence Flood Plan in the Segura basin.
