Clearing of watercourse from accumulated debris and reinstatement of dry stone wall
This project proposed by the Fontana Local Council aims to clear the 'Wied tax-Xlendi' watercourse from dumped waste material, compacted sediment and the reinstatement of existing dry stone wall. The purpose of the clean up is to retain more rainwater rather than having it flow into the sea. This would be of benefit to farmers thus making them less reliant on ground water extraction, which depletes the water table.
This project was eligible for 95% of its funding through the eco-Gozo 2nd scheme for Local Councils.
