THE long-running saga over Nerja’s sewage plant drew a little closer to completion when the town’s mayor, Jose Alberto Armijo, announced that the first stage of work had begun.
At a press conference at the site – located at the eastern end of the town – Armijo said that the administrative work dealing with the site had already begun.
And construction will begin ‘within weeks’ and is expected to take 24 months, with the plant fully operational six months after that.
The mayor added that the plant had been designed ‘to prevent any problems of bad odours’ entering the town.
When completed the plant will be able to handle water treatment for a population of 100,000 (Nerja has a population of just over 23,000) as well as a tertiary system that will allow the reuse of treated water for irrigation.
