New Sewage Treatment Plants

The Board of Ministers for the Central Government has approved 12m euros for sewage-treatment plants in seven municipalities within the province of Granada.

The budget is divided into three parts: 1.4m for the construction work to collect sewage waste from Lugros and take it to an EDAR. The village has a population of 450 residents.

The Board of Agriculture will provide 6.8m euros for sewage treatment in another seven dependencies belonging to three municipalities:

Polopos: Castillo de Baños, Haza del Trigo, La Mamola and La Guapa
Sorvilán: Melicena and Los Yesos
Rubite: Casarones

All of the above dependencies, with a total population of 5,400 inhabitants, are coastal settlements, whose sewage until now has not been treated and probably ends up in the sea.

There will be a network for sewage collection, directed into an EBAR (pumping station) which will send it all to an EDAR (sewage-treatment plant)

The last stage, with a budget of 3.7m euros, is for villages in the Guadix area: Beas de Guadix, Marchal, Cortes y Graena and their municipal dependencies of Los Baños, Cortes, Graena and Lopera, whose sewage will be pumped to an EDAR that will be built in El Bajarín in the municipality of Purullena.

Editorial comment: the EU fines Spain a huge amount of money each year because of a lack of adequate sewage treatment and over the years, it appears, the Central Government under both the socialist and the conservative administration has preferred to pay the fine rather than sort the problem out. Having said that, the coastal waters of Spain has far less sewage dumped into it than the UK’s.

    Question for those that have far more intelligence then me! Water will be, and in some places already is, more valuable then oil! So, at times some countries have too much water, let’s say the UK today.

    If we can pipe gas from one continent to another or ship thousands of gallons of LPG, why can we not do the same with liquid-gold, excess water. For instance, irrigated land, especially here in Southern Spain, where agriculture uses far more then humans. Just asking?

    So in Lugros. For €3111 per person, the crap will no longer flow downhill into the rivers. The other places that historically go into rivers or the sea, too. Nice!

    Thank god for Central Government/EU funding.
