chica muelle corralejo

Muelle Chica, Corralejo
As many will know the 'town beach' by Muelle Chica has been closed to bathers for quite some time while the source of polluted water is investigated and remedied. This report was in RTVAguaCabra today:

The City of La Oliva investigates the Muelle Chico full time, locating six black wells and numerous vanishing points.

The institution has hired specialized services that are dedicated exclusively to review the sewer system with cameras, acting so far in 74 connections between buildings and the network

The City Council requests neighbourhood collaboration to locate possible spills and help owners to solve it

The City of La Oliva is investigating the totality of the sanitation in the Muelle Chico de Corralejo and its surroundings, revising so far this year the connections to the network of 74 properties in the area.

The institution has hired specialized services to perform this task, a team of two specialists who, during the last month and a half, have dedicated exclusively and full time to review the sewerage network in the area, in coordination with the sanitation company, Canaragua, and using technology as two sanitary inspection chambers.

Thanks to this work, six black holes have been located among a total of twelve conflicting points that will be closed soon, as well as five other small escape points that have already been repaired.

Between the investigation of last year and this specific service, explained the mayor of La Oliva, Isaí Blanco, "the results obtained are very positive, and every day we are closer to being able to open the beach back to the bathroom. possible to solve this problem that has dragged Corralejo for decades "

Isaí Blanco recently made a follow-up of these works with the councilors of the departments involved, the head of Public Health, Rafael Benítez, and the Councilor for Works and Services, Oliver González.

Rafael Benítez detailed that both the City of La Oliva as the Department of Public Health of the Ministry of Health continue to perform weekly analytical, obtaining "results of water quality within normal in most cases, although it is true that occasionally appear pollution peaks, which is why we must continue working until we achieve continuity in the results. "

Oliver Gonzalez pointed out that "as the investigation finds a leak, our staff and the sanitation company coordinate to make the necessary repairs.Since the closure of the beach eight months ago, two important dumping sites have been located and closed. In addition to numerous smaller leaks in pipes and manholes, now it is time to close the new spill points that have appeared in collaboration with the owners. "

The mayor and the two councilors called for citizen collaboration. "We asked the neighbors to inform us if they had any information about wells, leaks, or real estate that might not be connected to the sanitation .. From the city we want to help them solve this problem and thus be able to open the beach."

Why is there pollution only at the Muelle Chico?

The continuous analysis of water quality on the beaches of Corralejo has shown that the only point where pollution appears is on the beach of Muelle Chico.

The most probable explanation given by the technicians would be related to the watershed of Corralejo. The configuration of the subsoil would be directing the subterranean waters towards that zone, dragging with them any pollutant element infiltrated from the sanitation.

Another possible factor would be the action of the tide, which when rising would mix with the contamination of the subsoil, and when it descends, it will decant to the beach, affecting the quality of the water.

The City of La Oliva and the sanitation company have found that there is currently no outfall that is spilling directly into the sea.
