Carril Dam in Tomar, being used mainly for ludic activities

There is a bit of controversy in regard to the Carril Water Dam. Initially this dam was built to help the irrigated agriculture in that region of Tomar, but after a few years and despite the fact that 15 kilometers of agriculture hydrants were built to irrigate olive plantations, fruit trees and a wide variety of vegetables, the farmers around the area, to whom the dam was supposed to service, refused to pay the duties which they claim to be too high, and nowadays this dam has just been used for sports fishing, boating and swimming.
