Junta Ignores Almuñécar?

ALM Blocked BarrancoAlmuñécar isn’t a happy bunny over the riverbed clearing operations because, they consider, the Junta has been ignoring them.

In yesterday’s article on the riverbed clearing it detailed all the work going on from Motril heading east down to Albuñol, but with no mention of any clearing work going on in Almuñécar.

Readers might also remember that last year after the Town Hall, tired of waiting for the Junta to start work in the town’s riverbeds and barrancos, decided to get down and do the work themselves, rather than be caught out by the autumn rains, only to have the Junta order the Town Hall to desist.

The Councillor for the Environment – and a whole host of other posts – Luis Aragón, said that he is going to demand explanations over this apparent marginalising of Almuñécar in that aspect.

He claims that having gone over the Junta’s Plan de Limpieza 2017, it makes no mention of the town’s dry riverbeds and gullies, especially, Río Seco, Barranco Cotobro or the Rambla de Cabria, which he says, are chock-a-block with wild cane and other vegetation.

Something else worth taking into consideration is that the building of the A-7 autovia radically changed some watercourses leading down to the coast, channeling them together and altering their capacity to deal with  excessive rainfall.
