At present, the plant can hardly cope with 7'000 cubic metres of through-flow per day but by the time the remedial and extension works are completed, the treatment process will have tripled its capacity. The excessive amount of effluent that arrives at the plant in summer means that there is a continual overflow being channelled out into the torrents (water courses), a state of affairs that has been complained about by local residents who have legally accused the Balearic Sanitation company, Ibasan, of committing a crime against the environment. The cost of the works will total roughly 8 million euros, of which approximately 4 million will come from European funding.
The work will be carried out in two phases.
