RAINWATER SLUICEWAYS, ZAPILLO BEACH, MUNICIPALITY OF ALMERIA (SPAIN)
- Start Date / End Date: 2008/2011
- Place: ALMERIA, SPAIN
- Scope: Construction Project
A construction project was completed for the rainwater sluiceways in the city of Almeria by means of a manifold parallel to the beach and various perpendicular manifolds which group different nozzle flow rates to the outlet chamber to a submarine outfall.
The characteristics of the submarine outfall are as follows:• Material: PE100.• Inside diameter: 3,000 mm• Length of polyethylene: 372 m• Flow rate: 8.6 m3/s• Discharge: GRP piece and 2,400 mm DN swing check valve
In order to do the work properly and not damage the local bionomy, a detailed field study was conducted of the entire Almeria beachfront detecting meadows of Posidonea, Cynodocea, etc., and an outfall was designed that would create the lowest possible impact.
