The control of MC Cartagena uncovers the existence of kilometers of lead and asbestos connections in the municipality (21/08/2018)

On the occasion of the approval of the municipal budget of 2018, MC Cartagena introduced an amendment worth 200,000 euros to carry out independent checks of the tap water of the users.

This is an important need given the age of the pipes and their materials, but also because of the different water sources that arrive in Cartagena and the constant changes in the quality of it.

In these circumstances, the Government of the PSOE has not contracted such controls, but has sent a letter, together with the concessionaire Hidrogea, reporting the change of lead pipes.

Also, the socialist councilor Juan Pedro Torralba recently reported areas where they are still maintained.

A new page of the dealership's lack of control

From the information offered in today's edition of La Verdad, it can be seen that the concessionaire has four years left to finish the withdrawal of the lead pipes and that it does not have a complete inventory, in addition to confirming that the contractors have not been hired. tap water analysis.

In this sense, the spokesman of MC Cartagena, José López, has assessed this situation stating that "it is a new page of the lack of control of the concession." They recognize that they will reach 2020 without fulfilling a Royal Decree of 2003, which set the deadline for 2012 ".

In the same way, López stressed that "we have to believe that the water we drink is in good condition, while in the west it is brown and Torralba does not hire the analysis, we are asked for faith in Hidrogea and the PSOE, and as they will understand, we can not have it. "

The Cartagena councilor recalled that the Municipal Group MC requested on August 8 a monographic meeting of the Commission for Monitoring the Contract, which corresponds to convene the mayor "to explain where they have gone the more than seven and a half million euros that Hidrogea has charged for a job that he valued in 2010 at six million, and now he acknowledges that he has not finished, as well as offering a detailed inventory of where the work needs to be continued and how they progressed from 2003 to the present. "

The mayor has reported that "we are talking about risks when the PP allocated fourteen million euros of the water fee to the Auditorium in 2003 or five million urbanization works that does not include the list in 2014, is irresponsible."

87 kilometers of asbestos pipes

On the other hand, José López has informed about the continuity of the investigation of MC Cartagena on this matter "while the mayor continues to cover Hidrogea by preventing the Commission of Investigation approved in January being convened".

He also added that "together with Marcelo Correa we have found that in the illegal and harmful review of Castejón for 2018, 87 kilometers of asbestos pipes appear more than in 2010, another issue that will have to explain why the manufacture of asbestos materials is prohibited in Spain since 2002. "

In conclusion, Lopez has highlighted the seriousness of the matter in case they have fattened the accounts to introduce extra costs, "so we will demand from the Plenary the rendering of accounts that we are denied and we already work in a dossier for the Office of the Prosecutor due to the economic importance but, above all, for its relevance to the health of all Cartagena ".
