Cuevas’ Urban Development, Agriculture and Environment councillor, Antonio Marquez, accompanied the Junta’s territorial delegate for Agriculture Water and Rural Development, Antonio Mena, to show him how work is going ahead on the €7.6 million project.
Construction is expected to take 18 months to complete and will require another six to start up, Marquez explained.
This installation will substitute the existing treatment plants that currently serve Cuevas, Villaricos-Palomares and Las Herreras, whose wastewater will in future be channelled to the new EDAR.
Marquez also expressed his satisfaction at seeing the progress made at the new plant. “This is much-needed and much- requested by the local population,” he said.
The Cuevas councillor also passed on to Mena Cuevas’ hopes that the wastewater would receive the tertiary treatment permitting its use for irrigation purposes.
