The Ministry of Agriculture, the UPCT and the municipalities of San Javier and Cartagena seek new solutions in the management of rainfall contributions in the La Manga drainage network (04/02/2019)

A team of researchers from the Polytechnic University of Cartagena will study the sanitation network of La Manga del Mar Menor, in the terms of San Javier and Cartagena, with the aim of optimizing its operation in episodes of rain by proposing a series of actions that avoid the dragging of pollutants in the first waters and their arrival in the Mar Menor.

The study, which must be completed within eight months, will be possible thanks to the collaboration agreement signed this morning in La Manga Consortium between the Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Miguel Ángel del Amor, the Vice Chancellor of Innovation and Company of the UPCT, Alejandro Pérez, the acting mayor of San Javier, Teresa Foncuberta, and the mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón.

The director of the research team, the professor of the UPCT, Juan García explained after the signing of the agreement, that the works will consist of monitoring the network to know among other data, the polluting load that comes, coming mostly from vehicle traffic on the road, to propose solutions that avoid its drag to the Mar Menor.

Juan García explained that the Region of Murcia, once it has built all its treatment plants, is in the phase of minimizing contaminant trawls.

"In addition to the environmental tanks, which are mandatory by law, in this case it is about finding other solutions to this type of runoff in episodes of rain by reducing their pollution load to the maximum".

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water, Livestock and Fisheries, through the entity of sanitation and wastewater treatment of Murcia (Esamur) will finance the total cost of the study amounting to 42,117.6 euros and will also be responsible for studying the six existing submarine outfalls in La Manga, to evacuate rainwater to the Mediterranean, to adapt them to the new regulations, in the approval phase.

Teresa Foncuberta pointed out the importance of this action for the general improvement of the operation of the network and in particular in the management of episodes of rain and the drag that entails in a particularly sensitive area due to the proximity of the Mar Menor, and thanked the initiative of the Counseling and collaboration of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena, together with the affected municipalities of San Javier and Cartagena, to seek new solutions in the environmental improvement of the lagoon.
