Water reuse programme

Actions of water reuse are set in the water reuse programme of Catalonia (PRAC) conducted by the ACA (Catalan Water Agency). The metropolitan area does not have a master plan on reuse, since actions affecting the metropolitan area are reflected in the ACA programme.

The PRAC is included in the Plan for the management of the river basin district of Catalonia, approved by the Catalan Government on 23rd November 2010.

The PRAC determines:
  • Reuse infrastructures to be promoted by the Catalan Government and other promoters
  • Definition of the uses that are considered most appropriate for each wastewater treatment plant
  • Operating costs
  • Establishment of management criteria

The aim is be able to reuse 209 hm3 of treated water in 2015.
