The refurbishment work on the Mula river were opened perfectly holding the flood (30/09/2009)

The president of the Hydrographic Confederation of Segura (CHS) and the state company Aguas de la Cuenca del Segura (AcuaSegura), José Salvador Fuentes Zorita, the director general of the same, Carlos Alcon, and the mayor of Albudeite, Joaquín Martínez, have visited today the completion of development works in Albudeite Mula River, ending with the danger of floods in this population because of this channel, for which the Ministry of Environment and Rural and Marine has invested 2,361,049 , 16 euros through the state company mentioned.

This visit comes just hours after this channel, it passes through Albudeite, have evacuated without any incidents a flood caused by torrential rains of up to 60 liters per square meter in just an hour falls, so that implementation has been essential to avoid injury and damage.

This project aims to prevent injury or damage that may be caused by the overflow of the river passing through Mula Albudeite.

Channeling, which has a length of 1,300 meters and can drain up to 980 cubic meters per second (m3 / s), 35 meters wide and the center channel of water forms a low of 4 meters.

wide capable of accommodating flow rates up to 3 m3 / s.

The work consists in carrying out masonry walls 5 meters high along the entire area Albudeite urban and peri-urban area and in the construction of a speck on protected cliffs slope down to the confluence of the Mula River Rambla de Albudeite.

In addition, it has been cleaned and conditioned the channel by a channel of low water, there have been revivals of relevant services (irrigation, water supply network, sewerage network, service roads, drainage, etc..) And have finished the work with the planting of trees on the edges of channeling and small gardens in the more urban.

With this action, concludes one of the last fringes of the Flood Control Plan in the Segura basin, approved by the Government of Spain in 1987.

These works have been financed by 70% by ACUASEGURA from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), while the rest provided by the CHS has its own funds.

On this stretch of river there were some floodwalls in partial installments with no continuity and poor conditions that gave a false security to the immediate environment, as they lacked sufficient height so that the channel has adequate drainage section and others are poorly grounded, so that a small flood could easily undermine and destroy them.

If one adds to this the poor maintenance of the bed along the whole stretch, where the vegetation grew unchecked and where individuals had occupied the banks locally, reducing the available water section, it is clear that any street median (as which can lead to the opening of the gates of La Cierva) could cause irreparable damage to the river discourse throughout this section by a semi-urban area.

The drainage capacity of the channel in the whole area was very low compared to the flood flows that can be run in the river, so there was a high risk that it could overflow causing significant damage, even with low flood period return.

The existing defensive walls were largely inadequate, and in any case lacked continuity upstream and downstream to get a proper defense of the river banks.

In the section on which it is acting the river's confluence with Mula and gullies Albudeite Arc, which overflowed in October 2003 causing the disappearance of a villager and material damage.

The works have been executed by Joint Venture Company formed by Ruiz Constructions Lift Aquagest German, while the Consulting and Technical Assistance to the Construction Management Company has made Grusamar.
