The regional executive maintains its skepticism about the 317 million euros announced by Ribera to recover the salty lagoon
There will be three demands that the regional government will present to the Minister for Ecological Transition, Tereas Ribera, in the meeting that she will hold today, at 2:00 p.m., with the president of the Community, Fernando López Miras: that she specify where the money will come from of the investments for the regeneration of the Mar Menor and to urgently undertake the cessation of the discharges by the El Albujón promenade and the abolition of the water concessions to the illegal irrigation of the area.
This was stated today by the Minister of Business and spokesperson for the autonomous Executive, Valle Miguélez, at the press conference after the Governing Council. The counselor thanked the minister for the visit to Murcia and showed her confidence that she would carry out the actions to be carried out by her department in the Mar Menor, but she emphasized the importance of reporting the budget items from which the necessary funds will come out.
The regional government maintains its skepticism about the 317 million euros announced by Ribera to recover the salty lagoon, since in the State Budget project for 2022 there are not enough specific items for this destination.
Miguélez also insisted on the importance that the Ministry undertake two actions urgently, such as ending the spills that come from the Rambla de El Albujón that reach the Mar Menor and stopping illegal irrigation by stopping the water supply.
