The lagoon is connected to a whole series of ditches and canals (the longest of which was dredged in 2016, being also one of the priority actions contemplated within the ACT), which has made it possible for the waters of the lagoon to be properly renewed and thus allow a greater presence of aquatic flora and fauna.
