In 3rd photo, one of the drifts of the perimetral channel of the dumpfill that sends the collected brine to the subterranean water; this brine springs in many places, being and the stream of Soldevila, the stream of Riudor and the river Llobregat from La Botjosa onwards the most seriously damaged watercourses.
