The president of the Community, Fernando López Miras, announced today that the regional government will allocate about 1.5 million euros to promote two "urgent and necessary" projects that contribute to stop flooding in the urban area of â€‹â€‹Los Alcázares and minimize their impact.
This was transferred by the head of the Regional Executive to the mayor of the municipality, Mario Cervera, during the work meeting that both held at the Palacio de San Esteban to analyze specific actions for Los Alcázares.
In this way, both administrations undertake to work together to mitigate the effects of the floods that occur in the municipality as a result of the rains.
Also, during the meeting, both parties agreed on the need for the central government to be involved in the implementation of solutions that guarantee the safety of the inhabitants of Los Alcazares.
"The solution will only come from the commitment and the joint and coordinated work of all administrations," said the Minister of Presidency and Finance, at the end of the meeting, who explained that "we can not forget that the State has about 80 per hundred of the competences in this area ".
One of the projects, valued at two million euros, refers to the recovery of the mouth of the Rambla de La Maraña, while the second, valued in this case at 1.5 million euros, is linked to the northern connection of a rainwater network that allows to evacuate the water that accumulates in this area.
The Community's commitment is to finance 50 percent of the cost of these two projects.
"These are two projects in which we will also collaborate to move forward as soon as possible, making available to the City Council the technical services of the Ministry of Development and Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Environment," said Celdrán .
