IRRIGATION

La Moraleja has two dams with a storage of more than 11,500,000 cubic meters of water. The irrigation system has more than 13,500 kilometers of drip pipes to irrigate more than 4,700 hectares of lemon, with more than 1,200,000 plants. Our irrigation system is ecological and respectful with nature; it does not use energy of the irrigation cycle at any time, for 3,500 hectares. The remaining 1,200 hectares are irrigated with deep wells (165 meters). The aqueduct is 70 kilometers long and it is made of buried HDPE pipe (diameters ranging from 1,200 to 200 mm) and more than 750 kilometers of buried PVC pipe.
