A BARRAGEM DA BOAVISTA



Barragem da Boavista
Barragem da Boavista


Português A Barragem da Boavista English The Boaviste Lake

A Barragem da Boavista localiza-se na Ribeira do Monte dos Monchões, em plena Bacia Hidrográfica do Guadiana.
Até aos anos 70 o abastecimento de Almodôvar (vila) fazia-se através de poos que se exauriam ao fim de alguns dias de exploraão.
Na década dos anos 80 recorrendo-se a fotogeologia foram executados furos de captaão em zonas fraturadas, que eram alimentadas por pequenos audes, através da recarga subterrânea.
Anos mais tarde construíram-se 2 barragens (Monte dos Clérigos e Boavista) para fins agrícolas, mas que passaram a abastecer a vila. A extraão maior provinha da barragem de Boavista que, apesar de possuir um volume de armazenamento menor que a dos Clérigos permitia no entretanto, melhor aproveitamento económico por se situar nas proximidades da central elevatória . Assim quando os furos e poos secavam, a barragem de Boavista abastecia a vila com água de superfície.

The Boavista lake is situated in Ribeira do Monte dos Monchões, within the hydrographic Guadiana's basin.
Until the decenny of the years 70's, the water supply of Almodôvar was done via the wells which would deplete after a few days of exploration.
In the deceny of the years 80's, appealing to photogeology, artesian wells were perforated in fractured zones, which were nurtured by small dikes by means of the subterranean recharges.
Years later, 2 lakes were build (Monte dos Clérigos and Boavista) for agricultural purposes, but who ended up suppliyng the town. The greatest extraction came from the Boavista lake which, despite possessing a smaller volume of water than the Clérigos lake allowed nevertheless, better economic profit as it was situated in the neighbourhood of the elevation central. This way, when the artesian wells would dry, the Boavista lake would supply the town with superficial water.
