The ‘Cleaning Plan and Clearing of Streams 2021’ has started in Mijas.
The mayor of Beaches and Operational Services, Jose Carlos Martin, visited the mouth of the Faro beach stream this morning, July 15, where municipal workers are undertaking the tasks outlined within the ‘Cleaning Plan and Clearing of Streams 2021’.
“As every year, in this summer period we begin to clean up the riverbeds and mouths that we have on our beaches. It is about removing the plants that have grown during the winter to avoid, in the first place, the arrival of the rainy season that hinders their transit or floods, and secondly, aesthetically that all our visitors see all these clean mouths”, says the councillor.
It should be noted that many of these mouths belong to direct access to the local beaches. The municipal workers have ahead of the conditioning of 13 streams and ravines including El Carrizo, El Charcon, Del Muerto, Del Moro, Del Carmen, La Cala, Del Bombo, next to the Hotel Oceano, La Lucera, Villapino, Alamos, and Playa de la Luna.
“We have started with this one that is in Playa del Faro, and then we will continue towards Marbella until we finish with all of them,” adds Martín.
These actions have an investment of 6 thousand Euros. There is not an established end date, but cleaning will be carried out during the months of July and August to avoid the inconvenience that they may cause since it is tourist season.
The Beaches area has been in charge of carrying out these works but has had the support, in some cases, of Operational Services and Basic Income.
“It is a performance that we have scheduled annually, precisely to have our mouths in perfect condition in the face of storms,” concludes the mayor.
