The initial study area encompassed 4806 ha.

  • In the Preliminary Study was defined the area to water in gravity and pressure, based on the study of alternative water sources from the adductor between the Amoreira Dam – Caliços Dam, the Brenhas dam and a lift system in Ardila.
  • Based on this preliminary study, the area was subjected to gravity Execution Project having been delimited the Moura-Gravitational block with a dominated area of 1674 ha, with water source from the adductor system Amoreira Dam-Caliços Dam.
  • The irrigation network, which begins on a filtration station with 18.7 km length of conduits with equal to or less than DN 1200 in concrete, FFD and HDPE, is provided with 23 hydrants and 27 mouths watering. The intervention in the road network, focuses on the rehabilitation of agricultural roads over a distance of 6.6 km. The intervention in the drainage network focuses on a set of cleaning, reprofiling and biophysics recovery of 13 km of water courses. The project also includes the monitoring system, Automation and Remote management and GIS. The area of Implementation Project was subject to the Environmental Impact Study
