Here at Alqueva,
opportunities are fresh

Guaranteed water

When Alqueva was designed, it was decided that its main asset should
be that of Strategic Water Reserve. In fact, the size of the reservoir created
by the Alqueva dam surpasses any reservoir in Europe and has created
a reservoir with 4.15 billion cubic metres of water. This huge water reservoir
is connected to all the major reservoirs spread throughout the country,
establishing conditions for them all to be supplied and topped up.
This guarantees the distribution of water in the most critical periods
and ensures that there is no water shortage even in periods of drought
lasting for 4 consecutive years.
This is the main advantage and main differentiating factor of Alqueva:
guaranteeing public water supply and water for all business activities
that require it. EDIA still undertakes regular monitoring of water quality,
with particular focus on the main sources of the entire project’s water.
