NRJ Sewage Treatment Plant 05:17Money has been alloted for the improvement of the back road that links Frigiliana to Torrox. Things are happening in Nerja concerning the sewage treatment plant, as well.

Thanks to the Plan de Inversiones Financieramente Sostenibles de 2017 a budget of 340,000 euros has been earmarked for the road improvement task.

The Mayor of Torrox, Óscar Medina, said that the work commencement would be “imminent,” which, unfortunately, is not a determinate measure of time, especially in the political world.

Whenever it comes about, it will be good news for all the cortijos dotted along this back road, as well as for the agricultural sector in the area.

Which brings us down to the coast and the question of the sewage treatment plant in Nerja: after six months of administrative constipation, something is moving!

The Estación Depuradora de Aguas Residuales (EDAR) de Nerja, readers might remember, is the last one on the Costa del Sol to be built and once it finally comes into use, it will mean that the whole of the Costa del Sol will have sewage-free water off all of its beaches.

After the collapse of the building-company union of Isolux-Corsán-Corviam, the plant languished in inactivity, despite it being nearly finished. This treatment plant is designed to handled 25,000 cubic metres of sewage water per day, which is the normal quantity produced by a population of 100,000 people.

Sorry but I couldn’t help doing the maths… that a quarter of a cubic metre per person per day of used water; i.e., kitchen and bathroom waste water.

To cut a long story short, if you drive along the N-340 where it passes in front of the plant you will actually see activity – they’ve been sorting out the access lanes between the plant and the road, as well as sorting out the main doors..
