Information about the water tanks

Information about the water tanks

In the AGM we had just gotten information that our water tanks were in great need of improvement for the sake of our health. Since then we have made contacts with different firms to do the job for us according to the information we had been given from the inspection made by the Ayuntamiento about the work needed to be done. We have had offers from 4 different firms.

On our last committee meeting on April 12, we decided to take the lowest offer for the by-pass given by Atalalya. That is part of work that needs to be done. This work will start as soon as possible and make a by-pass between the ingoing pipes and those going out to the urbanisation so we can empty the water tanks and make necessary improvements and clean them without interrupting our water supply. On April 19 we had a meeting with them for the sake of planning the work. The Ayuntamiento decides the time, as they have to stop water supply from the pipes from Coín.

In Spain the town veterinary is in charge of deciding how the water supply has to be handled for it to be healthy and being of good quality. We had an inspection with the Coín veterinary on April 25. We got a long list of must dos from her and we just have a month to make them happen. This is much more than building a by-pass and will cost much more than we have anticipated in the budget. The inspector shows her approval to the action taken by the committee but urges that the work must be done in the shortest time possible, or the inspection can lead to a substantial fine.

We provided a water analysis dated March 22, 2012, to which the pharmaceutical clears the water then as healthy.
