VALENCIA’S regional government, the Generalitat, funded repairs to the underwater sewage outlet off Moraira damaged by Storm Gloria last January.

Sewage treated at Teulada-Moraira’s treatment plant (EDAR) is carried far out to sea via pipeline but during periods of torrential rain this also receives excess water from storm drains.

A section of damaged pipeline that was discovered floating on the surface, one kilometre offshore once the bad weather had abated, has now been replaced.


The €466,105 repairs, which began three months ago concluded at the beginning of the month and are now being tested.

She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
