The Arroyo Quiñones and Torrejón de Ardoz facilities can treat over 120,000 cubic metres of waste water per day
The Government Council of the Autonomous Region of Madrid was informed today about the award proposal from Canal de Isabel II for the contracts governing the operation and maintenance services at the Torrejón de Ardoz and Arroyo Quiñones Waste Water Treatment Plants.
The tender, which is divided into two separate lots, will be awarded for a total amount of 7,648,947.28 euros over a term of four years for Lot I (Torrejón de Ardoz WWTP) and one year for Lot II (Arroyo Quiñones WWTP). The proposal must now be approved by the company’s Board of Directors.
The two treatment plants discharge water into the Jarama river basin. The Torrejón de Ardoz TreatmentPlant has served the town of the same name since 1986 and was enlarged in 2009. Up to 75,000 cubic metres of waste water can pass through this plant per day, which has a tertiary treatment process that enables reclaimed water to be produced for industrial use, watering plants and gardens, and cleaning streets. The Arroyo Quiñones Treatment Plant serves the town of San Sebastián de los Reyes and began operating in 2012. On a daily basis, this plant treats over 45,000 cubic metres of waste water.
Between them, the two facilities are capable of eliminating the pollution load produced by an equivalent population of over 620,000 inhabitants before discharging the water in perfect condition into the river.
