89. Events - MEMOLA project celebrates UN World Water Day - 14 March 2015, Sierra Nevada (Spain)

Cleaning Campaign of Rehabilitated Medieval Irrigation System of Barjas (Sierra Nevada-Spain) UN World Water Day was celebrated at the mountains of Sierra Nevada, thanks to the initiative of the FP7 funded, MEMOLA project. One year after the recovery of the irrigation channel of Barjas, the MEMOLA team, along with the local irrigators community, organised its cleaning followed by a community meal. Almost one hundred people joined for the event. The cleaning of the channels is crucial for its maintenance, assuring water released by the melting of snow for a peasant community of 400 people. The irrigation channels provide very significant ecoservices to the area: irrigates fields, recharges aquifers and maintains the habitat of a forest of chestnuts and oaks, among others. [read more]
