COASTLINE protection from extreme weather events was top of the agenda at talks between Adra Mayor Manuel Cortes and the Sub-delegate of the Government in Almeria Manuel de la Fuente.
At the meeting to analyse the various measures carried out in Adra by the Coasts Provincial Service, notably breakwaters in Guainos, El Lance and La Caracola, Cortes emphasized the need for actions which provide a “definitive solution” for the La Habana zone “to complete the protection of the entire municipal coastline from regression.”
The council says the zone is currently unprotected from the effects of storms and the matter is therefore a “priority.”
De la Fuente explained a study setting out strategies for protecting the entire Almeria coastline is currently underway, “which will identify the priority areas and key problems”, and which will “determine the comprehensive solutions which will have to be carried out in the medium and long term.”
The council leaders of all the province’s coastal municipalities will participate in the study.
