La Reserva Water Cycle
THE WATER CYCLE IN LA RESERVA
The Lake stores desalinated water for recreational use. In addition, it is responsible for filling the northern lake to up to 70% of its capacity.
The remaining 30% is filled with brackish water from the regional irrigation channel that is rescued with a high amount of nutrients.
The mixture of both waters is used to cover the water needs of La Reserva by means of a drip irrigation system, which guarantees the precise and efficient use of water.
Many of the nutrients recovered are consumed by the trees and other plant species on the resort, removed from the water cycle.
Both lakes function as urban sustainable drainage systems (USDS) by collecting rainwater for reuse.
The Lake also partly offsets water evaporation.
