And La Herradura has been at it for a full year now, with one street or another being dug up to separate rainwater and sewage water into different systems so that after a heavy rain sewage doesn’t spill out onto the street surfaces.
Quite apart from this healthy ‘separation of content,’ the replacement of the old narrow concrete sewer pipes for wider PVC ones means that lots of the damp in houses in the lower town will be a thing of the past.
The list of streets that have undergone this kind of work is, C/San Ramón, C/Blanquita, the lower half of C/Cuesta Peralta up to the crossroad with C/San Ramón, as well as C/Las Flores, C/Canalejas, C/España, C/Príncipe ending with C/La Unidad, once work is complete.
The whole lot has cost around half a million euros, financed by the Mancomunidad de Aguas y Servicios – actually it was financed by you via your water bills.
