The municipal group of Cs has echoed the "social outcry" that runs through the town and riverside municipalities of the Mar Menor and has taken a motion to the next plenary to audit the operation of storm tanks and "determine if they have complied with their function and if they have been able to harm the situation of the Mar Menor â.
This has been highlighted by the orange municipal spokesman, Víctor Pérez, who considers âit is necessary to evaluate these controversial infrastructures, because at its high cost and its limited operation before episodes of torrential rains, there is a suspicion that they may end up pouring contaminated water into the salt lagoon "
Pérez believes that "after spending 12 million euros in storm tanks we still have no objective assessment of whether its operation is up to this investment."
The orange spokesman recalled that the maintenance of these infrastructures ârepresents an important disbursement to the municipal coffers of the riverside municipalities where they were installed, but the most worrying thing is that we do not know for sure if they pour their polluted waters into the Mar Menor through spillways, which would be extremely serious. â
In his opinion, "we opted for cement ideas and not to attack the problem at source after the 'green soup' of 2016", with the result that the measures taken "have not been sufficient and in many cases are authentic fudge" .
However, Pérez also considers "that there are still more tanks projected in the riverside municipalities and this audit could help improve the rainwater collection system."
