JAUME Font, the Balearic environment minister, yesterday opened the third stage of the improvements to the Pollensa sewage farm.
Work started in summer 2004 and has cost nearly five million euros.
The new plant can now treat 22'500 cubic metres of sewage a day, and can cover the needs of the entire municipality, Font said yesterday.
The most modern methods of teating sewage are used at the new plant, where further work still has to be carried out. They include a new building for pre-treatment. Font was accompanied at the opening by Joan Crespi, the director general of water resources; Barbara Mestre, the managing director of the Balearic Water Agency, and Tomeu Cifre, the Mayor of Pollensa. The Balearic government spends considerable sums of money on maintaining and improving the network of sewage farms in the islands.
