After twenty years of abandonment, and even forty in the case of the branch of La Hijuela, the traditional irrigation system of Barjas was rehabilitated in collaboration with the National and Natural Park of Sierra Nevada, and CEAMA. This campaign was undertaken between the months of February and March of 2014, using traditional techniques and knowledge provided by the local irrigators community. This activity involved a total of 180 national and international volunteers, and concluded with 5 kilometers of the channels restored, including the branch of La Hijuela.
