SAMPLES of discharges entering the sewage network in El Campello will be taken and analysed regularly over the next two years to ensure industries and users in general are adhering to Government regulations.
The council has awarded €20,000 to Aguas Municipalizadas de Alicante Empresa Mixta SA, to carry out the project.
Deputy Mayor and Councilor for the Environment, Julio Oca (Cs), said: “The objective of the provision of this service is to control discharges to the sewage network, to verify the degree of compliance of industries and other users in general, with respect to the Municipal Ordinance of Discharges to the Municipal Sewer.”
He added that it will also allow for the proper functioning of the purification processes to thereby comply with the discharge restrictions.
Last December, the first phase of the project began with the whole network identified and mapped.
On Wednesday, January 22, an extraction system was set up which will extract 200 samples over a 24-hour uninterrupted period. Samples from 44 sewer network stations, from Muchavista Beach to Venta Lanuza, will be taken and analysed over the next two years.
