Francisco Saorín, Councilman Works and Infrastructure, has announced the actions carried out since June manifold wastewater from Ascoy.
Saorín explains that "the problem is known for this council and from the Department of Works and Infrastructure have taken action long before the neighbors elevate public complaints about odors. From the moment we learned of resurgence odors from the sewage collector Ascoy, action has been taken to detect and minimize the problem. "
Councilman Works states that "the engineer of Public Works reviewed the area to verify that there was no connection between the newly constructed storm drain Mill Road and the old sewage collector from Ascoy. For safety, we ask construction company a joint inspection to be performed to have full security. "
Continues the mayor stating that "he was also forwarded to the company Aguas de Cieza, which leaned hydraulic seals scuppers that were dry, to avoid the emission of gas, injected in all scuppers sodium hypochlorite, to to control odors and made a greater injection of caustic soda in the head manifold in order to proceed with a cleanup along the path wastewater collection, increase the pH of the water and prevent the proliferation of sulfides " .
According Saorín, "the real problem is that this is a work that should never be approached in the way it was done, as the collector has a larger diameter than the collector in which connects, producing the funnel effect and greater slowdown in the flow of the waters and the floods in some areas, when the flow rate increases by the action of the rains. the long flowing of water from Ascoy and the industrial area along 11 km and the large number of valleys cause the water to sleep and sulfide gases proliferate, so we are facing a problem that was never solved, and all subsequent actions are part of an attempt to improve a work that should never be built. "
"The only possible solution from the very beginning was the construction of a wastewater treatment plant that never wanted to build, and there are even unfavorable reports for urbanization of the entire area of â€‹â€‹Ascoy if the construction of a sewage treatment is not undertaken, something that IU he worked and even won in the supreme court, but never realized. "
Ends Councilman noting that in April 2016, and referred the project to improve wastewater collection Ascoy and the collector of Maripinar to the Ministry of Water, Agriculture and Environment, for inclusion in the Plan II drainage and water treatment of the Region of Murcia;
"And embark on a journey in search of support for the sewage treatment plant Ascoy a reality", which expects to have with him "a few neighbors are necessary to achieve that objective, involved in the pursuit of money needed for the mentioned construction to the Autonomous Community of Murcia and President Pedro Antonio Sanchez ".
