The work of the municipal government of the Los Alcázares City Council continues to provide solutions to the floods suffered by the municipality in cases of heavy torrential rains, or DANAS, and to minimize the damage they cause in the town.
And it is that to this work the continuous demands of the alcazareño alderman to the competent administrations are added. In this case, a conference call was held this morning between Mayor Mario Cervera and Secretary of State for the Environment Hugo Morán, in which the Director General of Water of Spain, Teodoro Estrela and the President of the Association Affected by Floods, Santiago Pérez Blaya.
In this telematic meeting the mayor has put the two main problems of the town on the table again, these being the floods and the current situation of the Mar Menor. The mayor has expressed the importance of acting urgently so that severe measures are carried out in the Mar Menor, to avoid the arrival of nitrates in the lagoon, which are very harmful.
Likewise, Mario Cervera has commented on the critical situation in which the Mar Menor is currently found, "a situation that is seen and smelled, and which is undoubtedly the result of inaction for years to solve such an environmental tragedy, therefore this problem should be rooted and not patch ", explained the manager. Regarding the floods, Cervera has once again reminded the Secretary of State for the Environment that there are already 10 short-term measures worth 15 million euros that have been prepared by the Segura Hydrographic Confederation with the collaboration of the Association of Affected for the Floods and himself as mayor of the Los Alcázares Town Hall. According to the municipal official, there is a consensus on these measures and assures that "it is urgent to put them into operation to avoid more events like those experienced recently on the most prone to temporary dates, from September to December." In this sense, the mayor has explained that the only work that has been launched is the one that the Los Alcázares City Council, 50% financed by the State, but said work without the necessary measures above, outside the town, does not problems can be solved. For his part, Hugo Morán has promised to visit the town in the coming months when he can travel from one autonomous community to another to visit Los Alcázares, and he will do so "with his homework done," he said. The mayor has added that "for the first time there are projects to prevent future floods, something that is new, since years ago there had been no step forward, and now it is time to execute them as quickly as possible to solve this very serious problem and that Los Alcázares can look to the future with optimism.
