Murcia region optimizes the use of the scarce water volumes available, because it has modernized irrigation systems and integrated management of all water resources of their different sources: Tajo-Segura transfer, debugging, aquifers exploitation and desalination. It also has the most innovative techniques in sanitation, which cover almost the 99% of the population.

Regarding reuse of reclaimed water through purification, Murcia Region has the highest percentage of all Spanish peninsula, reaching the 30%, face up to national average with a percentage of 8%, and with numbers of reused water of 195 hm3/year in agriculture.

In recent years, Murcia region has been favored with the consolidation of drip and high frequency techniques of irrigation, which has been a major transformation of its irrigation, standing as the Spanish region with the highest irrigated surface by drip irrigation, reaching a 98% of Campo de Cartagena surface.
