VELEZ-RUBIO: Water supply problems continue in rural areas

LAST September, Velez-Rubio resident Andrea Lowe contacted the Euro Weekly News to tell us about her water supply problems.
Andrea lives in a rural area where cuts were intermittent throughout last summer.
When she spoke to us two months ago, we learnt that earlier in September she and her neighbours had no running water for 10 days. Even as she was talking to us, there was another cut in the supply.
Since then an exasperated Andrea has been in touch with the Euro Weekly News again.
“We have had less than four hours’ water over the last four days,” she said recently.
Worse still, she cannot get through to the town hall because Velez-Rubio town hall appears to have blocked her.
“I can’t send messages to their Facebook page, they don’t reply to emails or respond to communications via their website,” she added.
“I have phoned and messaged the town hall plumber countless times but get no answer.”
Her next move would be to message Velez-Rubio’s mayor directly, Andrea explained.
“I’ll let you know if I do get a response,” she told us, but warned us not to hold our breath.
