ESTEPONA Town Hall is facing yet another probe into a dangerous river.
The European Union is investigating claims that high levels of methane have been detected in a river which could be a fire risk as well as a typhoid health hazard.
Complaints of raw sewage being pumped into the Arroyo Judio, in El Padron, have been ignored for over 10 years by Estepona authorities.
However, a petition lodged by Estepona Expat Association chairman Tony Dodd has now been accepted by the European Union.
“It is great that the petition has been accepted,” said Dodd, who has previously submitted complaints to the town hall, the police, the fire department and even the Junta.
“But each time I have been ignored, despite this being a clear danger and disgusting,” he said.
In May, the Olive Press revealed that high levels of the deadly E-Coli bacteria had been found in another Estepona river (story here).
The riddled Arroyo del Horancinos has since been visited by Junta officials but has yet to be cleared up.
Estepona Town Hall has yet to comment on either case.
