Farewell to Sewage Plant Stink?

The Mancomunidad de Municipios de la Costa Tropical has begun work on the EDAR de Motril-Salobreña (sewage-treatment plant) which the Chairman claims will do away with the lingering ‘hum’ within six months.

The Chairman of the said local-area council, José García Fuentes, was accompanied by the Mayor of Motril, Luisa García Chamorro the Manager of Aguas y Servicios, Manuel Ruiz; none of whom are adverse to appearing in a photo, as he laid the first stone – and we’re not talking about Mick Jagger. There was also a sprinkling of other politicians present.

“We are sorting out a problem that has afflicted the locals of Santa Adela, El Varadero and the beach,” said the Chairman.

The works has a budget of 740,637 euros, financed by the extra tax (canon) for infrastructure improvement, which is levied on everybody’s water bill. As mentioned above, the project has a duration period of six months and will be carried out by Aguas y Servicios, overseen by an engineer from the Mancomunidad, María López.

Sr. García Fuentes also announced that they were going to sort out the rain drains and sewage pipes between La Puchilla and the sewage-treatment plant, which should take some of the strain off the 4 Caminos pumping station. All this should hopefully stop the port and vega area getting flooded out each time it rains.

The Mayor of Motril, Luisa García Chamorro commented, “These actions are an example of how two administrations such as the Town Hall and the Mancomunidad, join hands and coordinate their efforts to sort out long-running problems.”

Heartening words indeed. However, seeing as the Chairman of the Mancomunidad not only belongs to the same political party as the Mayor, but he is also one of her councillors in the Town Hall, one would be very surprised if they didn’t ‘work well together.’
