The new stormwater detention tank consists of a concrete structure with a volume of 176 m3, occupying an area of 19×11 m2.
HIDROSTANK SL has supplied our tipping buckets and Spillway PAS Screens, which guarantee the good operation of the tank.
The construction of the storm tank in El Sardinero (Santander, Cantabria), carried out by Aqualia, has meant an investment of 851,084 euros, charged to the resources allocated annually as a fee for the execution of new works, improvement or renovation of the networks.
This project will substantially improve the environmental conditions of the pre-existing spillage by avoiding the discharge of water from the first washing into the sea, as this facility will also carry out a purification task by cleaning the dirt produced by the dragging of the water on the ground.
