The Department of Environment, through the Andalucian Water Agency, is set to spend €800,000 on improvements to the water supply and sanitation systems in Vélez-Málaga, Torrox and La Viñuela.
In Vélez-Málaga, repairs are to be carried out on the sewage system in Torre del Mar. This summer, many bathers have complained about sewage being discharged onto the shore rather than out to sea. The cost of these repair works has been estimated at €500,000.
The remainder of the project, valued at €300,000, concerns repairs to water supply pipes in Torrox and La Viñuela which were damaged by storms last February.
