ANDALUCIA has finally vowed to treat all of its sewage by 2015.
The Junta has guaranteed an investment of 1.8 billion euros over the next five years to complete the project in line with the EU Water Directive.
To achieve its aim the Junta will make 300 infrastructure improvements – including dozens of new sewage plants – around the region.
Malaga will receive the most funding with an allocation of 390m euros that will see 20 new sewage plants built in inland towns including Arriate, Coin and Cortes de la Frontera.
Granada will receive 373 million for the completion of 69 projects, while Almeria will receive 216.9 million euros.
The scheme is to be financed by a rise in water rates of 1.20 euros a month per family.
