Reservoir Biscarrues

We have already seen and analyzed the problem that refers to the Rivers of Spain and its decline in the flow, caused by various factors referred not only to climate change, but also to an over-exploitation of water resources, added in addition to a bad water planning, which leads to a dam construction without taking into account the details of the environmental impacts are causing.

Adding to this problem is the approval of the location of the Reservoir Biscarru├ęs, which has been approved by an environmental impact statement issued no more and no less than by the Ministry of the environment, Rural and marine, who has been harshly criticized by environmental organisations belonging to the Council Adviser on the environment (i.e., Ecologistas en Accion )(, Greenpeace, WWF, friends of the Earth and BirdLife)

Stands out not only that this construction will lead to the irreversible destruction of areas of great natural value, but there is also a glaring contradiction, that among these locations, there are many covered by the Natura 2000 network.

In addition to these factors, it is estimated that the usefulness of this reservoir is doubtful, for what will look for the different legal options to prevent its construction.
