Regarding the statements of the Secretary of State for the Environment, Hugo Morán in Onda Cero Murcia in which he affirms that the City Council of San Javier has not responded to the requirement of Costas on the beginning of the process of the legalization of the occupation of the public domain maritime land by stormwater conduction or withdrawal thereof, reports the following:
On November 28, the State Coastal Demarcation of Murcia was informed through an email about the actions initiated by the City of San Javier in relation to the requirement for legalization of the use of DPMT by stormwater.
The aforementioned brief informs about the opening of a contracting procedure for two companies to carry out a camera inspection in the Santiago de la Ribera and La Manga del Mar Menor conduits and an internal inspection with a drone of the frames that lead the waters to the point of discharge, for which the Local Government Board of November 14 approved a total expenditure of 26,698.65 euros.
He was also informed of the start of hiring a consulting company to write legalization projects.
In the same letter he was informed that the City Council will proceed to the withdrawal of several conduits, among them those that are located next to the Nautical Club of Santiago de la Ribera and others in La Manga del Mar Menor, as well as the continuous analysis of the discharges whose results allow us to affirm that in no case are water flowing from the sewerage network, attaching the latest results.
Similarly, the City Council wants to make it clear that from the first moment the rainwater network was inspected, which resulted in the publication of a municipal side, in mid-October, urging the communities of affected owners to seal basements to prevent the transfer of water from the water table to the rainwater separative network.
It is also recalled that the City Council of San Javier has participated in all technical and inter-administrative meetings in which the State Coasts Demarcation participates, which at all times has been aware of the steps that were being taken in this regard in San Javier.
For all these reasons, the statements of the Secretary of State for the Environment, Hugo Morán, are not understood since, from the outset, the City Council of San Javier has shown its willingness through facts to solve this problem and even less when the legal deadline established by the Law 1/2018 on Urgent Measures to Guarantee Environmental Sustainability in the Mar Menor environment does not end until February 13, 2020 for the legalization of spills or the withdrawal of the conduits subject to the requirement referred to by Hugo Morán.
