Common Sense up North

At least one town hall has forbidden its residents from using mains water to wash cars, wash down patios or the street outside their doors.

GRA Dehesas Viejas 400x250Dehesas Viejas, which is in the Montes Orientales area (North) of Granada with a population of 723, certainly won’t have its municipal maintenance workers out hosing down its streets because despite the rain (no matter the colour) its municipal wells are drying up.

The Mayor, Lucrecia Rienda Lozano (IU), has warned that if they find “excessive use” registered when it comes to irrigation, the farmer will be cut off. Filling a pool will mean a hefty fine.

As a point of interest, this village had the oldest stretch of road in the whole of Spain until 2008. Until that year there had never been any repairs along this 5-km section of the GR-3100 since it originally tarmacked.
