    Las implicaciones sobre la calidad del agua, medida ésta a través de los parámetros de carácter físico-químico empleados en la literatura específica, es uno de los principales problemas asociados a los trasvases de aguas superficiales. En este trabajo se realiza una valoración de la implicación económica del trasvase derivada de la adecuación de la calidad del agua resultante a los estándares de calidad exigidos por la legislación vigente, después de utilizar un indicador global para evaluar el efecto que sobre la calidad del agua tiene un posible trasvase de agua del río Ebro a la cuenca del Júcar, estableciéndose distintos supuestos de aporte de caudal, y referido a la comparación de calidades en su tramo Castellón-Mijares. Todo ello bajo la perspectiva del uso prepotable del agua. En el trabajo se utilizan los parámetros definitorios de la calidad físico-química del agua, para los que se dispone de suficiente información Water quality is one of the main problems in surface water transfer. In this work we make a economic valuation of a transfer of water from the Ebro River to the Júcar Basin, derived from the adequacy of water quality to legal quality standards. We propose a global quality index and different scenarios of river discharges are considered refered to the Castellón-Mijares section. In this work only physical and chemical parameters are used to define water quality, those parameters considered in the European Union Directives and from which sufficient information were available.
