The Arenal de Xàbia beach reopens to the bathroom: "The quality of the water is excellent"

28 June 2023 - 12: 50

El Javea Town Hall has reported this Wednesday that, according to the latest analyses, bathing is allowed in the Arenal Beach.

During the day yesterday, the emergency closure of said beach was resorted to because high levels of bacteria of fecal origin had been found in an analysis. The entire Tuesday bathing was prohibited. However, this Wednesday it has reopened, indicating the consistory that "the quality of the water on the beach is excellent."

    If the "system" works, read treatment plant and "black" water network, then very well. In any case, watch out.
    And, if not, increase surveillance and inspection of those who dump shit out of the general sanitation network.
    Easy right???

    In March the Mayor gave me this answer. It seems that nothing has been done...

    «In relation to your concern with the rupture of the underwater outfall of the arenal, it must be pointed out that it is a conduit through which already treated residual water is pumped from the treatment plant, to carry it a certain distance from the coast. In other words, it is treated water, and the pipe that comes from the treatment plant 30 meters, 250 meters or 1 km away has always been water that has undergone a cleaning process.

    We understand that it has been an event of great controversy, and many people have been exposed to the bombardment of false or manipulated information. But they have to trust and follow the official communications. We are a developed country, with environmental laws and if there is any indication that there is danger, the administration reacts. Even if it's midsummer and damage the public image. I think it was demonstrated with the closure of Arenal on July 26.

    Regarding its repair, tell him that the Gloria storm broke many emissaries and the Generalitat, which is the competent body, plans to replace many of them (ours among them). To this end, the global contract for this work is being prepared, which will require a lot of investment and complexity. They considered it urgent, at the time, to repair the leak 30 meters from the coast, which is the one that was carried out immediately in the summer. But replacing all the pipes will already be contracted together with the works of other outfalls.

    With all this, we hope to have clarified certain uncertainties and there is no doubt that the City Council is the first interested in citizen security and the well-being of its population.
    Thanking you for your collaboration, receive a cordial greeting»

    It must be solved now, with a suitable outfall and a more sophisticated wastewater treatment plant (tertiary treatment), enough with patches... Reputation is lost very easily, recovering it is much more difficult.

    Right on LGTBI Pride day, what more could you ask for? Let's celebrate it in one of those party venues that flush their toilets just above the Arenal!! in 24 hours they say they have filtered all the fecal matter.

    • Incarnation Sanchez says:

      Those who celebrated the opening of their restaurants, without making the corresponding arrangements. Shameful
