WASTE water was top of the agenda at a meeting between Huercal-Overa council and the Junta de Andalucia.
Mayor Francisca Lourdes Fernandez and Town Planning and Environment councillor Monica Ruiz met with the regional government’s Water Infrastructure Director General Sergio Arjona to talk about the municipality’s main needs in terms of waste water treatment and drainage infrastructure.
The council representatives requested financial help in addressing deficiencies, and specifically the need for better functioning treatment plants in outlying districts.
“We have to look out for the public health of our residents and the protection of the environment, with the necessary infrastructure for treating waste water”, the Mayor told commented.
Fernandez described the meeting with Sergio Arjona as very positive.
The council said the first expected actions on the municipality’s waste water treatment infrastructure would be the construction of plants in the Urcal and La Hoya areas, for which the projects have already been drawn up.
In the meeting the council also highlighted a need for what it said would be more than €3 million in investments in plants in Los Menas, El Pilar, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, El Saltador, Santa Maria de Nieva, the industrial estate and the Huercal-Overa General Collector.
