Did you know that Ineco participates in the largest hydrographic management programme in Spain?

Ineco supports the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) in the extension of the official groundwater monitoring networks (piezometry and quality) in the different hydrographic basins of the nine confederations under the responsibility of the ministry (Miño-Sila and quality) in the different hydrographic basins of the nine confederations under the ministry's jurisdiction (Miño-Sil, Cantabrian, Duero, Tagus, Guadiana, Guadalquivir, Segura, Júcar and Ebro).

To carry out this work, our company has a multidisciplinary team made up of more than 20 professionals from disciplines such as biology, geology, topography, forestry engineering, mining engineering, agricultural engineering, environmental sciences, and hydrology.

Piezometers are devices for measuring the level and quality of water in aquifers. Ineco is currently drawing up the construction projects for the new piezometers, aimed at extending the control networks. This work ranges from the preliminary environmental consultancy, through the selection of sites for each one, to the drafting of the documents that will define the execution of the corresponding works. The information generated during this process has been made available to both MITECO and the Hydrographic Confederations involved through different viewers and computer applications managed by Ineco, which optimise the fluidity of communication and decision-making on the location, design, and equipment of the new piezometers.

The current network has more than 2,500 piezometers and is expected to grow to 4,000 in the coming years. Its functioning is fundamental in the management of water, one of the main challenges facing our country.
