When we saw the giant concrete tubes designed to take excess rainwater under the CV95, we did wonder where this water was to go when it reached the Huerta.
The answer is into a 200,000 litre reservoir located opposite the Medical Centre.
From there it can be used for irrigation or any other purpose. Water that is not used within 10 days will be drained into the Alquibla canal to prevent the problem of mosquitoes using the stale water as a breeding ground. .
