Nerja council has called on the regional government, the Junta de Andalucia, to carry out €400,000 worth of improvement works on the towns drainage system. The amount corresponds to the quantity of money raised by the Junta from a new water tax that was imposed in 2011. Infrastructure Councillor Antonio García claims that the Junta has raised a total of €63 million through this tax and “as yet has not executed a single project”.

Nerja’s new water treatment plant is being funded by central government and the councillor has called on the Junta to either start work on the related drainage projects that were supposed to be funded from this tax or “if they are unable to carry out the work, allow Nerja Council to take over the work, because in more than a year of applying the new tax, they have not started a single project. ”

Nerja council, together with the municipal water company, has developed a list of works required, including the pumps at the Río Seco, Castillo Alto, Punto Limpio, El Chaparil and Maro, and the drains in calles Trancos, Iglesia, Virgen del Carmen, urbanisation Almijara and the barriada de Los Poetas.
