The councilor has reviewed some actions such as the reform before summer of the Martínez Valero EBAR, the complete remodeling of the collectors and the operation of the treatment plant. “In a period of less than 2 years there will be a complete before and after in everything that has to do with the municipal network. Your neighbors and neighbors need these improvements and we also know that Santa Pola is a great recipient of many people in summer that deserve refurbished and dignified facilities”, the councilor pointed out.

The initial amount of the work amounted to 1.5 million euros to which another item has been added in order to fully reinforce this EBAR. Specifically, the Martínez Valero station will have an action consisting of the construction of a new and expanded underground area, the replacement of pipes and the generator set, as well as the installation of 6 non-clogging pumps and the increase in the permanent pumping capacity of the current 143 m3/h to 249 m3/h.
