slick, Nerja

The latest news on the never-ending saga of Nerja’s first sewage plant is that the company involved with the project is now filing for pre-bankruptcy, which means that work on the collectors and pumping stations has once again stopped. It does seem to be standard practice for construction companies to go bust at some point during proceedings, so it doesn’t really come as a surprise.

On the contrary, no doubt many are amazed it has taken this long for it to happen. The only slight surprise is that the company involved is quite large and operates internationally.

Even more disturbing is the revelation that company involved in the emptying of cesspits has been ‘sanctioned’ after local residents complained that lorries were driving down to Burriana beach and dumping their loads. Can things get any worse? Let us hope not.
