Mijas officials have outlined plans for solutions to three distinct plumbing and drainage problems, namely in Sierrezuela, Mijas Jardin and Peñablanquilla.
Urbanism councillor Manuel Navarro announced the three plans at an estimated cost of €24,000.
The Mijas Town Council will help with up-front funding up to 10%, though 90 per cent of the eventual costs will be met by the communities and their residents.
The first of these plans consists of the construction of a large sewer in the Maria Barranco river basin that will collect grey water from the Sierrezuela and Mijas Jardin urbanisations.
The estimated budget for this portion, which will be implemented by INASER, is €7,600 and has a one-month completion forecast.
The second project is a more interconnected project specifically for Mijas Jardin that deals with varied infrastructural elements such as drinking water, road paving, excavation, and traffic regulation.
The project which has been given to OLUZ, will cost an estimated €8,230 and take 20 days.
The third procedure is a drainage sewer system in the Peñablanquilla urbanisation that will connect it to the main sewer line since, according to Navarro, “the current treatment plant does not meet EU environmental standards.”
OLUZ will undertake this third project whose cost is likewise €8,230 and which should also take 20 days.
Navarro asserted the importance of these projects, which he stated should have been implemented several years ago.
