Work to finish Nerja's waste water treatment plant is well under way after the project was restarted on 19 February this year, following a nine-month stoppage.

Drains in the town centre, including Antonio Ferrandis 'Chanquete', Prolongación de Antonio Millón, Chaparil and Jaén streets and the pumping station at the mouth of the Chillar river are all almost finished.

Work is now focused on installing two further mains pipes along the Burriana beach promenade, which the company responsible for the project, Isolux-Corsán-Corviam, says will be finished within the next two weeks.

Work will stop over summer so as not to affect tourism and is planned to start again on 15 September when the mains pipes in Calle Jaén and Calle Diputación are set to be completed.

The town hall has said that the project will enter into a test phase by the end of this year, with a view to it being up and running by the end of 2019.
