GREEN party EQUO has warned it will not be convinced about Nerja’s new water treatment plant until building starts.
While a €23 million contract was awarded to constructors Corsan-Corviam-Isolux last month, the plan still has to be approved by the Environment Ministry before construction can begin.
“Let’s not get too excited about it yet – there is still a lot of work to be done yet,” said a spokesman from EQUO, the first green party to be set up in Spain.
Taking the opportunity to draw attention to ‘the environmental costs of a wastewater treatment plant’ the party reminded of the need ‘to ensure the surrounding areas are not affected’, an aspect which it said will be very much the subject of its continued watch.
EQUO said it was proud to have been a key campaigning force behind the project but added it would have no qualms about staging more demos if work has not started by June 30, 2013 ‘so it does not take another ten years’ to build it.
