The Segura Hydrographic Confederation (CHS) has carried out a significant clean-up operation at the Azud de Alfeitamí in Almoradí, aimed at removing tons of accumulated waste obstructing the dam’s floating barrier. José Ángel Pacheco, a senior technician at CHS, stated this activity is part of the routine maintenance of floating retention barriers across the Segura basin. These barriers, essential for preventing river contamination, require communal effort to maintain after clearances, emphasising the importance of preventing waste accumulation. The previous clean-up, conducted two months ago, removed approximately 8,000 kg of waste, with over 5,500 kg being plastics.
