Walking on water in Estepona

Walking on water

ESTEPONA’S new wastewater treatment plant is finally operational following four years of delays.

The Guadalmansa sewage works will serve 400,000 people, also covering Marbella, Benahavis and Istan, tripling the volume of residual water that can be processed on a daily basis.

Spain’s Minister of Agriculture, Fishers, Food and Environment, Isabel Garcia Tejerina, was on hand to open the plant, which has been completed using a €35 million cash injection from the national government and Junta de Andalucia.

The long-awaited infrastructure will now contribute to solving the Costa del Sol’s wastewater issues, although 17 municipalities continue to dump raw sewage into rivers or the sea, in particular Alhaurin el Grande, Coin and Nerja.
