They are hydraulic complexes that get variable flow resources, but of high quality, and in their operation become models of sustainable use of water, as they stream and use the water table near the surface, without energy cost. Only those flows that after rainfall are included in the deposits of sand and gravel of river beds can be achievable, resources that are renewed after each episode of rainfall. On the northern limit of the Prelitoral Depression, the one of the Rambla de Béjar and, those of Los Cotes-Cegarras and Caño-Contracaño in Rambla de Nogalte remain active. They are local systems that produce own water resources in dry environments, models of sustainable water use in climate change scenarios.</p> José María Gómez-Espín Copyright (c) 2021 José María Gómez-Espín Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Ditch with double function (drainage-irrigation) in the Huerta del Segura (Spain): a planned irrigation adaptation to the aridity and dearth of water <p>The traditional irrigation established on the banks of the Segura River is the paradigm of the dominance of the environment by social groups. The implantation of irrigation canals (living waters) and drainage (dead waters) made possible a revulsive transformation of this territory to be colonized. The reuse of drainage flows for irrigation meant reaching the maximum efficiency of use in a semiarid region, making this fact known and the value of this hydraulic heritage is the double objective of this work. To do this, a model of this integral water cycle is approached with the Azarbe Mayor del Norte, which supplies a sector of the Huertas de Murcia and Orihuela, a pattern repeated in other pipelines. The analysis has been based on three complementary sources of information: field work, archival work; finally, the review of the digital cartography provided by the respective management bodies.</p> Gregorio Canales Martínez, María Dolores Ponce Sánchez Copyright (c) 2021 Gregorio Canales Martínez, María Dolores Ponce Sánchez Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 The Green Infrastructure and its Potentialities for the Regeneration of River Systems: Examples of Best Practices at Different Spatial Scales <p>The article analyzes the state of the Green Infrastructure issue in Spain, first defining what we understand by this concept and what its functions are. Second, it identifies the antecedents in different regulations, planning instruments and official technical documentation that have been developed in recent decades in Europe and specifically in Spain. This review leads to defining its current situation, establishing the current European and Spanish regulatory frameworks, as well as the one currently under development. After this analysis, it addresses the usefulness of the ecological restoration of river systems in the new context of Green Infrastructure, studying its potential as a tool for landscape regeneration, how it does it and what results it offers. To do this, we present some cases of good practices showing different forms of action at local, regional and international level that this framework of action offers.</p> Daniel Fazeli Tello, Leandro del Moral Ituarte Copyright (c) 2021 Daniel Fazeli Tello, Leandro del Moral Ituarte Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Lisbon: The identity of a city without water <p>In this article, we intend to analyse the growth of Lisbon’s water supply between 1890 and 1913, identifying the areas of the city that were privileged and the pace of investment. Based on the historiography produced, we will seek to go further, by conducting a methodological and critical analysis on data provided by Population Surveys, Household Conditions Survey and Companhia das Águas de Lisboa Reports, concerning the annual investment on water supply network. With these documents, we will analyse the implementation of a supply infrastructure near the commercial and political centre of the city and close to the new areas. The review of the figures thus raises the question: what criteria have underpinned the growth of the network. Throughout this paper, we intend to contribute to the institutional history of Companhia das Águas de Lisboa by helping to reinforce the importance of the company in the society of that time.</p> Bárbara Silvia Bruno Copyright (c) 2021 Bárbara Silvia Bruno Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Issues Concerning Water Source Management in Cariri, Ceará, Brazil (2014-2016) <p>This study analyses the issues related to water source management in Cariri, which is historically marked by water market experiences, and the current challenges concerning water management in the state. Cariri is located in the state of Ceará, a semi-arid Brazilian state, and is an emblematic case when considering the tension between water availability, water scarcity, and water sharing. The study is based on observations made in a series of meetings promoted by the Water Resources Management Company of Ceará, COGERH, regarding “conflict mediation” as well as on the minutes, reports, and technical documents produced during these “mediation” processes between 2014 and 2016. The essay reveals the existence of multiple meanings associated with the different uses of water and the dilemmas related to its access, despite the legal definition establishing its public domain.</p> Daniele Costa da Silva Copyright (c) 2021 Agua y Territorio / Water and landscape Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Learning About... Educating for... The Sustainable Use of Water: A Methodological Proposal for Teaching Based on the Use of Water in the Past <p>The paper is a teaching methodological proposal so children and young people have a better consciousness of water-related issues that affect the planet and its sustainability; i.e. it aims to contribute to a wider and better education about water. Relevance is given to the traditions, particularly the ones related to the transport and storage of water, allowing the development of scientific knowledge and skills, and valuing cultural and ancestral traditions and knowledge. Although the mentioned traditions are mostly Portuguese, examples from other countries are also given; simultaneously, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), particularly SDG 4 - quality education - and SDG 6 - water and sanitation - are explored. This intervention proposal is also an appeal to involving non-formal educational contexts, such as the UNESCO Club Science, Tradition and Culture, to complement the knowledge acquired in formal educational contexts - schools.</p> Helena Margarida Tomás, Margarida Afonso, Marta Marques Copyright (c) 2021 Helena Margarida Tomás, Margarida Afonso Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 The mill network of the western Sierra Morena in the late fifteenth century <p>The present work has the task of reconstructing the mill network that was formed at the end of the 15th century in the current region of the Sierra de Aracena, then known as Sierra de Aroche. It is an exceptional set of more than 250 mills, which can only be explained by the characteristics of the natural environment where they were located. Moreover, for such reconstruction, through 13 maps, made thanks to a series of reports written at the time on such facilities, it has been vital to have a multitude of toponymic data present in them. The conclusions and information provided by this analysis open up many possibilities for study in areas related to economic and demographic growth, as well as social relations is in the region.</p> José Damián González-Arce Copyright (c) 2021 José Damián González Arce Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 About the journal Revista Agua y Territorio Copyright (c) 2021 Revista Agua y Territorio Thu, 17 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000
