Motril Sewage Treatment Plant

The Mayor of Motril along with the Chairman of the Mancomunidad and the Head of the Aguas y Servicios (water board) visited the EDAR (Sewage Treatment Plant).

They went there after inspecting the progress on the pipework that takes the sewage from the south and west of the town and whisks it off to the said installations. This additional ‘plumbing’ is designed to do away with the ‘hum’ (stink) produced after it rains in the Varadero, Santa Adela, beach and vega areas.

Whilst at the installations, they looked into how the work on eliminating the smell produced at the plant itself was going on. Consequently, the Chairman of the Mancomunidad declared that the pace of the work was proceeding favourably and should be concluded by May… maybe this year, maybe the next – just joking!

The Mayor, Luisa García Chamorro, thanked the Mancomunidad de la Costa Tropical for its “sensitivity” and announced that together with the work on the Rambla de las Brujas, it should be concluded by summer. The question is, does the summer begin in May this year?

The Mayor concluded by declaring that the Town Council and the Mancomunidad worked “in good harmony.” One could be forgiven for being surprised if that weren’t the case, given that the Mancomunidad Chairman, José García Fuentes, belongs to the same party and is the Vice Mayor of the Town Council, himself. They even share the same surname.
