The Plenary urges the Mancomunidad de Canales del Taibilla to provide La Sierra with water from the Montisol reservoir


The Plenary Session of the City Council of Totana agreed to request to the Mancomunidad de Canales del Taibilla (MCT) the provision of water to the deputation of La Sierra from the Montisol deposit, with a meter and the necessary pipes to entrench in the municipal networks, as was done in the district of Lébor or in the deposit of the Camino de Los Secanos.

Precisely, last week the MCT gave the green light to this municipal request during a meeting held by the mayor, Juan José Cánovas, and the Councilor for Urban Planning, Infrastructure, Environment and Works, Pedro José Sánchez, with its president, Francisca Baraza and the Secretary General, José Manuel Fuentes, respectively, to address issues that affect this municipality.

By virtue of this meeting, the MCT has assigned the Casa del Guarda to the totanero Consistory for different future uses of public interest, after repeated requests and municipal efforts;

and it has guaranteed the supply with water of the Taibilla to the Complex of the Santa and the deputation of the Sierra.

This action, which was precisely approved by the Plenary of the Municipal Corporation last January at the initiative of the Mayor's Office, will mean considerable savings in the current situation and water bill, as well as an optimization of the networks within the framework of the Adjustment and Savings Plans, as explained by the first mayor Totanero.

According to the motion, in 2005 and in the framework of investments of the Program of Actions for the Management and Use of Water (WATER), the Central Government made an investment, around 2,300,000 euros to provide joint supply to the Aledo municipality, with the construction of a drive from the Huerta road to a new warehouse in a supply depot located in the upper area of ​​the Montisol urbanization.

That important investment in facilities was never launched and now, 15 years later, it is announced that Aledo has requested to join the Taibilla, preparing this public entity, the facilities to launch that important infrastructure that will serve the neighboring municipality and whose Investment has been made for years.

In these times, the only utility of this work has been the provision of water to a part of the network of Virgen de las Huertas de Totana that came to solve the serious problems suffered by the neighbors of Los Huertos and La Charca, until the action carried out by this City Council in the summer of 2015 when it was connected to the Huerta road network, from the inlet pipe to the Aledo Drive.

As indicated by the mayor's motion, it is a great opportunity to launch this work to request the Mancomunidad de Canales del Taibilla, the provision from that deposit, with an independent exit and counter that supplies the Sanctuary of La Santa, the buildings and public services, the hotel and the private homes of the Strait.

Also the housing area from the Arco de Aledo to the Camino de los Molejones, completing the Taibilla water service to the Tejera and Las Alquerías area.

With this operation, it would only be left uncovered by the Taibilla water, the Santa Leocadia site or the highlands of Las Alquerías that would continue to supply the birth of Carrasca and Los Frailes.

With this operation, which would mean a minimum investment for Totana, it would be possible to lower the water bill that is now paid to the Aledo City Council, passing to the Mancomunidad de Canales del Taibilla whose rate is considerably lower than the current one.

In addition, stability in the water supply in La Santa and an important part of the La Sierra deputation (the most populous) would be guaranteed, considerably reducing maintenance costs, chlorination and water in the network and other very expensive operations in a highly network deficit for years, despite having no high cost.
