Project description

This project aims to rehabilitate the hydraulic infrastructure (intake and main canals) on the Avezac irrigation scheme, and modernize the network with a view to irrigating 2,500 hectares of agricultural land in the long term, as opposed to only 800 ha in 2012. 

Since the bed of the Grande Ravine du Sud has risen by several metres, the intake for the Avezac irrigation scheme is no longer able to meet the minimum requirement of 2.5m3/s. The project aims to renovate both the intake and primary and secondary canals, with a view to supplying 2,800 ha of agricultural land as opposed to 800 ha today. 

At the same time, it is necessary to modernize the secondary and tertiary canals (overhaul of hydraulic infrastructure and installation of regulators) and restructure the irrigation scheme management system. 

The project also includes a social water management component, supported and supervised by the SCP/GC consortium.
