AXARQUIA, amidst Málaga’s severe drought, is poised for a transformative solution with the upcoming desalination plant. Facing water restrictions and pressure reductions, the region anticipates relief through a €100 million government-backed initiative. Collaborative efforts between the Andalucian Government and central authorities aim to integrate private technical expertise for a public desalination facility near Vélez-Málaga.

The desalination project comes as an encouraging development for Axarquía‘s agricultural community, a long-standing advocate for water security. Mayor Jesús Lupiáñez has identified a suitable site, that meets both technical and municipal criteria, for the plant’s construction. This venture not only addresses immediate water needs but also aligns with a broader strategy to combat drought.
