Recycled water

Aigües Sant Lluís, S.L., is part as co-owner and manager of the treated water user community from (E.D.A.R.), Estación Depuradora de aguas residuales of Sant Lluís for the use of irrigation for public and private gardens, as well as drainage.

This community is formed by Sant Lluis Town Hall, Group of Companies Alonso Marí, S.A., Bada Badoc, La Era Grande S.L., Protume S.L., and Aigües Sant Lluís S.L.

The Community receives the concession from the General Direction of Water resources, organisation which depends on the Environment Conselleria of the Balearic Government on April 4th 2001, giving it a maximum of 200.000 m3 annual of treated water for public areas irrigation, private gardens and septic tanks in resort hotels.

Objectives of the Community:

  1. Gradually increasing the water network in order to give the service to larger consumers.
  2. Increasing consumption in order to lower the cost and the final price, making more attractive and profitable to recycle the water.
  3. Making a sustainable water management by extending its use, we could have an ecological benefit, because drinkable water produced would be replaced by recycled water quality.

Data service:

Nowadays our service is composed by a pumping station which collects the treated water of E.D.A.R. of Sant Lluís and be sent to a tank of 800 m3 capacity. Thanks to the 7.600 m of pipes, water is distributed in different parts of the residential areas of Punta Prima and Biniancolla, T.M. of Sant Lluís, (Minorca).

Graphs:

We present a first evolutionary graph about the total annual consumption of the customers of the community, the second one is to compare with the drinkable and recycled water and the third one with the percentage of total consumption of both supplies.
