The municipality of Los Alcázares delivers the first project to minimize the chances of flooding in the so-called zero zone of the municipality, as promised in the meeting held with President López Miras and the counselors to solve the serious problem of flooding
This project consists of the extension of the rainforests in the center of the town, the most floodable area that has suffered five floods in the last 3 years.
The new rainwater will connect the channel designed by CHS behind the IES Antonio Menárguez Costa.
And, this channel is the one that receives the "uncontrollable" water avenues when torrential rains occur and once it is filled it ends up flooding Los Alcázares.
The project includes the incorporation of frames of size 2x1'5 meters that would allow to drain 10,000 liters per second, thus avoiding that these quantities of water circulate through the main streets as before.
The mayor Mario Cervera, has affirmed that "the City Council of Los Alcázares has complied with what was agreed during the meeting held and now it is the turn of the Autonomous Community to comply with the Alcazareños and Alcazareñas."
He has continued explaining that "it is the first of the projects that the town hall of the Mar Menor intends to implement in the absence of measures from other administrations."
"We cannot remain impassive while the administrations do not act, since the lives of my neighbors and the future of my municipality are at stake. This step demonstrates the responsibility of the Los Alcázares government team with their people, and the possibility of solving this big problem, besides that it is a fact that stopping floods is a priority for us.
