The purpose of this study was to identify a source of water to reinforce the water resources stored in Serra Serrada Dam reservoir, the main basis of urban supply for the region.
The Preliminary Study included the analysis of 4 alternative solutions, technically feasible, considering the technical, economic and environmental components:
- Veiguinhas Dam;
- Parâmio Dam;
- Castrelos Dam and
- Catchment at Azibo Dam reservoir.
This study was further completed with:
- the definition of measures to minimize impacts;
- a monitoring plan for the works and
- the environmental monitoring plans to be implemented.
The Environmental Impact Study of Veiguinhas Dam was also carried out, after being considered the best solution presented.
