Residents advised to save water in Javea

JAVEA’S desalination plant is currently facing an extreme situation; the high temperatures have forced the facility to work at 100 per cent, a situation which has only occurred twice before in its history.
Recent high temperatures have stretched the performance of Javea’s desalination plant to its limit.
The plant, which was opened in 2001, has been operating at 100 per cent. This has only been necessary twice before, both times during the extreme heat of August 2014.
To ensure a constant supply the plant needs nocturnal recovery to restock the tanks. As there has been little rainfall, combined with extra demand for water due to the early start of the tourist season, this has not been possible and the company that runs the plant, Amjasa, had to cut supplies to Benitachell and Teulada, but this is a temporary measure.
To help customers reduce their intake, Javea Town Hall and Amajsa have launched an awareness initiative.
Water gardens in the early morning or evening, not in the heat of the day. Look for leaks on your property and check your meter with all appliances off to see if there is unrecognised usage. Do not fill your pools and try to save water wherever you can.
