THE beaches of Can Pere Antoni and Ciudad Jardin in Palma that were closed Monday afternoon and Tuesday reopened yesterday.
Heavy rainfall had overwhelmed the local sewage pumping station and Palma council closed the beaches as a precaution until analysis showed the seawater was safe to swim in.
Red flags were first raised on Monday afternoon to comply with an agreement reached between local neighbourhood associations and the councils.
They agreed that after heavy rain precautions should be taken as sewages ends up being discharged straight into the sea untreated. New works are planned at the sewage works to solve the problem.
