Last Saturday a break was detected in the underwater outfall (the conduit through which treated wastewater is pumped from the treatment station to convey it a certain distance from the coast) and the Entitat Pública de Sanejament d' Aigües Residuals (EPSAR) -responsible for its management- to proceed with the repair.
In coordination with the Red Cross team that is in charge of security and lifeguarding on the beach, it was agreed to delimit the bathing area closest to the point where the broken pipe is located to avoid any accident or physical risk due to the currents it generates. In no case is this preventive measure linked to the discharge, since it is already completely purified water and not dirty.
The City Council continues to work so that bathing conditions are the best both in Arenal and along the coast. In addition to the regeneration that is being carried out at points such as La Grava, protection beacons have already been installed in various sections of the coastline and the lifeguard service has been activated during weekends and holidays in the Arenal Beach.
