The Town Council undertakes work to clean up streams in the Calahonda area

  • The investment for these actions amounts to 35,000 euros
  • Areas of reed beds, exotic and invasive species are being eliminated, always respecting autochthonous species

The aim is to minimise the risk of flooding and fires because of the reeds and weeds that accumulate in these areas

Operational Services and Beaches are carrying out clean-up work in streams that are close to urban and embanked areas. "We continue with these cleaning works in streams so that when the rainy season starts, they could be in perfect condition," said the Mayor responsible for both areas, José Carlos Martín (Cs), who recalled that a few weeks ago this same action was carried out at the mouths of these streams, "now we are in more urban areas, where we have located overflow points when it rains, such as the Los Álamos and Kujau streams, in the area of La Luna," explained the Mayor.

These are selective clearing works for which 35,000 euros have been earmarked. "Mainly we are eliminating reed beds, exotic and invasive species, always respecting native species and the biodiversity of the streams," said the Councillor for the Environment, Arancha López, who is collaborating in the development of these works. The Town Council is appealing to residents not to deposit their pruning waste in these streams. "When pruning their gardens, do not leave the waste in the vicinity of the streams, but deposit it correctly," insisted López.

The work on the Los Álamos and Kujau streams began five weeks ago and will continue for at least another week, according to municipal officials.
The Council asks the neighbours not to deposit pruning waste in the streams.
