Laundromat in hot water as soapy bubbles contaminate streams and wells

stream

SAMPLES from 20 Soller water wells are being tested for suspected contaminants from a local laundromat.

A stream passing through Biniali was tested 18 months ago to determine if the laundromat discharge was contaminating the water.

But after initial tests proved inconclusive, the sample size has been increased as locals maintain the water and subsoil is tainted from contaminated discharge.

Neighbours of Biniali have been complaining of soapy water for more than a decade, even reporting the formation of suds when residents fill their pools in the summer. The laundromat has had permission to pipe excess water waste directly into the nearby stream since 1993.

Mayor of Biniali Miquel Fiol supports revoking the permission, as ‘new treatment technologies and regulations’ are now available.
