Council confirms big spend
THE fear of drought has been long held in towns along the Costa del Sol and now that the Mijas council has received approval to spend €7 million on water improvements from the Junta de Andalucia work will soon commence.
The area in the municipality which is most troubled by shortage of water during the summer is Mijas Pueblo and €1.2 million has been allocated to build an enormous water tank to supply the village.
A further €2.2 million is planned to be spent this year on installing a whole new network of pipes for both water and removal of sewage all of which will be put out to tender by Acosol the local water company.
The balance of work must be completed by the end of 2021 in accordance with the agreement approved by the Junta and once the work is finished, all parts of the Mijas should enjoy free flowing water at all times of the year.
