The University of Lleida Foundation, in conjunction with a number of other institutions, has planned a congress to mark this historic anniversary. The congress aims to provide a forum at which specialists from different countries will be able to exchange their experiences relating to different aspects of industrial and agricultural canals, including:
(1) History of canals and their impacts on the society (power and water supply)
(2) The different uses of canals and their impact on local landscape, environment and sustainability
(3) The management and improvement of canals to meet energy needs
(4) The importance of canals for regional economies and territorial development, and canals within the European Water Directives
The effect of irrigation water quality was investigated in a commercial mandarin orchard during four growing seasons using fresh water (EC ≈ 1 dS m−1), irrigators’ association water (EC = 1–3 dS m−1) and reclaimed water (RW) (EC ≈ 3 dS m−1).
