Help needed to man the Villajoyosa pumps

THE Marina Baja water consortium will be asked to pay to pump water to Villajoyosa’s Alfondons deposit.

Local growers pay an annual €23,000 to fill the deposit for crop irrigation but cannot afford to continually pump the water from the local waste-water treatment plant.

It is usually at only 60 per cent capacity but could be 100 per cent full if the consortium helped with pumping costs, Villajoyosa Town Hall said.

“We’ll see if they can cover all the cost of pumping so that it is always full,” said Infrastructure councillor, Jeronimo Lloret. He also pointed out that growers were not using the Amadorio dam’s domestic supply: “They prefer residents to have drinking water.”
