PLANS are still moving forward, if not slowly, for a dam to be built on Oliva’s Rambla de la Gallinera.
The agreement between the Ministry of Environmental Affairs and ACUAMED for finalising the project continue with a presentation being made in Madrid.
ACUAMED, the public company in charge of planning the project of draining the Rambla, has been caught up in red tape which has at some points paralysed the process including the Ministry of Defence having serious doubts that the proposed location would be appropriate.
At the presentation the Director-General talked to the representatives of the Oliva Council, ACUAMED and other involved parties to discussed the legalities which have been put into place along with the legal obligation to execute the project.
A month by month monitoring programme will now continue to intensify the clearing of red tape to finalise the decision of what type of dam would be built, and to ensure the project continues to move forward.
