This publicly owned company is going to build a pumping station to carry wastewater to the treatment plant at Torremocha de Jarama
- As the company that manages Madrid’s water cycle, one of our strategic priorities is to promote the region’s environmental quality.

Canal de Isabel II will allocate a total of €1,771,893 for construction works for pumping wastewater from Patones to the treatment plant of Torremocha de Jarama. This project will be executed over a period of 18 months and will transport wastewater from Patones and an area around Torremocha to the treatment plant in the area.

Wastewater pumping stations (WWPS) play an important role in the management of sanitation and urban drainage in towns, as they raise the wastewater, both from homes and from rain collected in gutters, to higher levels, so that they can reach the treatment plants.

This includes its plan of excellence for purification, the aim of which is to improve the quality of discharges from wastewater treatment plants and contribute to the good condition of the region’s rivers.
