Fresh Water for Ibiza

Spain's Ministry of the Environment is going to spend €13.5 million

Spain's Ministry of the Environment is going to spend €13.5 million over the next 18 months so that all Ibiza can enjoy fresh water. At the moment only parts of the island have access to the desalinated water produced by the three plants at Santa Eulalia, San Antonio and Ibiza town.


There are still areas which rely on water from wells on the island, which because of high demand, has high concentrations of salt and calcium. Not only does this make a mess of your afro when you're in your hotel shower in say, Playa de'n Bossa, but also plays havoc with domestic appliances like dishwashers and washing machines.


The investment by the government will provide connections to all three desalination plants and then to the remaining towns and villages on the island so that we can all enjoy sparkling glasses from our dishwashers and more importantly, non-flyaway hair!
