Salobreña vs. Nasty Streaks

The new Mayor of Salobreña is determined upon eradicating the unwholesome scum that appears off Salobreña's beaches, he announced.

SAL Mayor of Salobreña Javier OrtegaInterestingly, he described these appearances of being from “unknown precedence,” although one could suppose that he knows where they do come from.

He announced his intention in the last Plenary Meeting (this Tuesday past) which received unanimous support from all parties, and the motion was approved: the Plan de Acción para la Mejora de la Calidad de las Aguas de Baño.

Mayor Javier Ortega Prados, explained in an interview on the local radio that they had decided to take this step even though such responsibility is not a municipal one.

He said that they could not sit back and let this sort of news capture media attention each summer, especially when it comes to the extreme, as was the case this summer, of having to shut a beach down, right in the middle of the high season.

Now, with the backing of the opposition parties, the task at hand is to get all the relevant administration to sit at the table. He confides that within three months they will have the preliminary conclusions.

The plan involves municipal environmental experts and municipal police officers, seconded to the Policía Medio Ambiental. Once the “diagnosis” is obtained, explained the Mayor, then corrective measures will be taken to avoid a repetition of the situation this summer.

The Town Council is controlled by a tripartite coalition (PSOE, Más Salobreña and IU) and according to Mayor Ortega Prados, they’re getting along just fine.

    Unwholesome scum ! That’s no way to describe visitors who bring much needed dinero to the area!

    A while ago, divers found that either the outflows had been either not maintained or very badly built in the first place. Plus the influx and resulting efflux, from the summer crowds. Overwhelmed the sewage plants.

    With perhaps the illegal outlets from new builds of all sizes, contributing to the issue. So these pipes are a sort of last resort or first? Which means the sewage plants are not doing a good job. Lack of money at the bottom end (pun intended) and good salaries at the top?

    What will we do if they build two new massive hotels between Playa Granada and Salobrena? Stay out of the sea? It’s not sharks!
