THE provincial government is to invest in €1.3 million in updating water supply infrastructure in the Levante and Almanzora Valley areas, which it is hoped will make sporadic water cuts a thing of the past and guarantee water supply to homes and businesses.
The administration said the programmed projects in Mojacar, Huercal-Overa, Antas, Fines and Carboneras will improve hundreds of domestic connections and will involve the replacement of 10kms of pipes in streets in the five municipalities.
The most extensive works will be in Huercal-Overa, where more than 3.5kms of Galasa water utility company pipes are earmarked for replacement. Affected streets in the town will be Calvario, Júcar, Almanzora, Guadiana, Duero, Tajo, Ebro, Segura and Paseo de Parias. There will also be works in the Giviley and Fuente Amarga hamlets.
New water pipes will be installed in six streets in Fines (Real, Sevilla, Europa, América, San Antonio and San Esteban), and six streets in Antas (Celia Viñas, Isabel Casquet, del Mar, Goya, Natividad and Adelfas).
In Carboneras the improvements will be carried out in Avenida 28 de Febrero and Maestro Emilio García, Maestro José Fuentes, Las Marinicas, Granada, Morillas, Las Avenidas, and Avenida de Garrucha.
In Mojacar the works will be concentrated in the beach and Parata areas, affecting 22 streets in all, and seeing the replacement of nearly 3kms of pipes.
Provincial Development Deputy, Oscar Liria, said the funding had now been approved and the works were due to get underway in the near future.
The works come under the provincial administration’s Infrastructure Improvement Plan.
