THE expansion of the Mojacar wastewater treatment plant is an investment priority, the Andalucia government’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Sustainable Development regional minister assured the mayor during a visit to the municipality last week.
Carmen Crespo went to see the treatment plant and the land earmarked for the €13 million enlargement project, accompanied by Mojacar Mayor Rosa Maria Cano, Agriculture, Fisheries and Sustainable Development provincial delegate Aranzazu Marin and local councillor Francisco Garcia.
The regional minister described the plant as an “essential infrastructure” and underlined the Agriculture, Fisheries and Sustainable Development department’s commitment to a project which she said should have been actioned in 2007.
She said the department put great emphasis on the importance of increasing the treatment capacity in order to guarantee sanitation in the Levante area municipalities and cope with a predicted population of 53,800 by 2036.
She also pointed out the need to update the purifications systems.
“Mojacar’s treatment plant is one of the most important in the whole of Almeria, and what we the Andalucia government is doing now is to re-launch the expansion with the implementation of the process which will allow us to start the project as soon as possible”, Crespo commented.
She revealed the provisional approval has now been signed and the plans would shortly be available for public information.
“There is nothing more ecological than purifying our waste water”, Crespo added.
