Pilones

This treatment plant is located in Arroyo de los Pilones, in the area of Santa Rosalía, near the Parque Tecnológico de Andalucía, and the reservoir of the same name.

The water collected in the reservoir guarantees the supply of raw water for the city, as the entire municipality of Malaga is ensured a constant supply for 12 days from here.

A unique feature of this DWTP is the radial layout of its 20 high-pressure sand filters that guarantee production of 2,000 l/s.
