The objective of this study, commissioned by the Catalan Water Agency (ACA), was to determine the economic benefits occurred in the area of Tordera due to improved water quality derived from the operation of a new desalination plant. The analysis was based on the results obtained with the avoided cost methodology for the Metropolitan Region of Barcelona, established in a previous study by ENT.

Additionally, results were contrasted with 120 surveys conducted in households, hotels, restaurants and shops in the area of analysis.
