Returning water to the environment


Return of water to the natural environment

The end of the cycle


In the last phase of the cycle, treated water that is not reused is returned to the sea through special pipes or ocean outfalls. An effort is made to ensure that natural systems are not altered.

Ocean outfalls and pipes are maintained to ensure that they work properly. These facilities should be checked every year and are monitored externally by a qualified company.

The aim is to ensure compliance with the current regulations and permits that have been granted. To achieve this, samples are monitored, effluents from each facility are analysed, seawater (receiving water) is analysed in surrounding areas, sediments and organisms are analysed at each of the discharge points, and the structural quality of each ocean outfall and/or pipe is verified. All the results are gathered in the corresponding final report that includes an evaluation of the results.

At Canaragua, we are a responsible company with a marked environmental nature that manages the complete water cycle. Our raw material is water, a very precious resource. Consequently, we implement environmentally responsible and efficient behaviour during the entire water production process. We can only contribute to maintaining the ecological balance with the natural environment and sustainable development if we are consistent in our approach.
