The City Council of Seva has inaugurated on Wednesday, June 8, the remodeling of the Fontanelles WWTP that supplies drinking water to the municipality itself. The event was attended by Maria Anna Pineda, Mayor of Seva, and also by Núria Rivera, Councilor for the Environment and Renewable Energies, who chaired and led the event.
The inauguration was carried out with the aim of explaining and disseminating among the neighborhood the need and benefits of economic investment in these improvements to municipal equipment, and especially to raise awareness of the cost and complexity of having a as basic as drinking water is.
Various actions have been taken, such as the improvement of the pre-treatment system in the coagulation and oxidation chamber, the renewal of the chemical treatment process, the improvement of the product storage and dosing system, the automation of the filters and, finally, the rehabilitation and structural adaptation of the decanter. Currently, the plant also has a remote control system that allows you to monitor and control the various processes remotely and in real time.
All these actions of improvement and automation will allow to increase the efficiency of the plant and to lower its cost of operation. It will also be possible to minimize the effective time that municipal operators have to dedicate to make adjustments manually and in person to the different processes of the plant with the consequent cost for the council. Stops at the ETAP will also be avoided due to the inability to carry out the appropriate treatment of the catchment water due to periods of drought and poor quality of the catchment water.
This remodeling has been carried out by Elèctrica Pintó, a company founded in 1974, based in Santpedor and specializing in electro-hydraulic installations and drinking water treatment.
