The Mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, has attended a meeting in Madrid with the Minister of Environment, Miguel Arias Cañete, the Director General of Water, Liana Ardiles, and the Minister of Justice, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, to discuss the proposed sewage treatment plant.
The Council has approved a motion asking the Junta de Andalucia to carry out works they announced would be carried out from proceeds of the water canon introduced under the 2010 Water Law. To date, the canon has raised €63 million, of which €400,000 has been contributed by nerjeños, yet not one single project has thus far been implemented.
The consortium contracted to build the sewage plant in Nerja, Corsan-Corvia-Isolux, has asked for a further two months in which to prepare their final draft project. The company was originally due to submit the project on April 12th 2013 but this has now been extended to May 12th 2013.
Thursday was the first working meeting of members of the Council, the Ministry of Environment and the contractor selected to construct the sewage plant. Regular meetings were a commitment made by the Ministry of Environment.
According to the Mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, the Secretary of State for the Environment and the winning consortium have apparently signed the contract for the design and construction of the sewage plant, this occurring on 12/12/12.
The Mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, has announced that the contract for the sewage plant was yesterday awarded to the joint venture company Corsan-Corviam-Isolux in the amount of €23,245,036.44 including IVA.

There are apparently conflicting, and obviously disturbing, reports as to whether or not the State Budget for Málaga for 2013 includes provision for the proposed sewage plant in Nerja.
Over the years, many of them, the anticipated cost of building a sewage plant in Nerja has risen, and risen. The latest estimate/budget/call it what you will is €40.6 million, with some ‘experts’ recently stating that, due in the main to the elevated terrain, a more realistic figure would be €60 million, or even more.
The Mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, has announced that the Central Government remains committed to the construction of the sewage plant in Nerja and that the financial bids have been opened at the Ministry of Environment.
