Tancat de Milia
Management of this artificial wetland that cleanses the water in the Albufera.
Together with Pavagua Ambiental, the Global Nature Foundation manages this artificial wetland that cleanses the water in the Albufera. It also has the option to receive effluent from the “Albufera Sur” WWTP for a final refining treatment prior to its discharge into the lagoon.
This wetland recreates ecosystems that accommodate species of great importance such as the aquatic warbler and many other Anatidae such as the ferruginous duck or the red-crested pochard. It is also used as an area for the re-introduction of endangered species of both flora and fauna.
In the Tancat de Milia and the Tancat de l’Illa, we participate in the programme for the re-introduction of the European pond turtle together with the Department of Agriculture, Environment, Climate Change and Rural Development of the Valencian Regional Government. In both spaces, ongoing activities are carried out for the continuous census of birds or the monitoring of water quality.
In recent years we have developed numerous artificial wetlands as a water purification technique in both Spain and elsewhere (Philippines, Colombia or the Dominican Republic).
