A GROUP of neighbours has protested over contamination of one of the island’s most popular bathing spots.
Dozens held up placards to demand action after filthy groundwater from a nearby construction site continued to flow into Alcudia’s Es Clot beach.
The town hall has confirmed it is to look into the issue after the water on the beach turned brown, leading to the death of fish and crabs.
As previously reported by The Olive Press, neighbours claim that developers of a series of homes near the beach are allowing water to flow into the cove.
In January, building work was stopped for an inspection which concluded that the groundwater should be filtered better. The company complied and resumed work.
However, the problem has apparently still not been dealt with Alcudia’s Environment chief insisting he will bring in the Guardia Civil’s environmental arm Seprona.
