Slop­ing beaches for Santa Pola

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News - Djones@cb­

By Dave Jones AN INI­TIA­TIVE to ‘im­prove the qual­ity of the sand’ on Santa Pola’s beaches will take place over the com­ing months.

Coun­cil­lor for beaches Mercedes Landa said they will aer­ate and then spread the sand so it slopes down to the sea. This means that flood wa­ter will run down to the Mediter­ranean and stop sand from be­ing washed away, she noted.

It will also pre­vent the build up of wa­ter around the foot­baths.

“There will be spe­cific ac­tions for each beach be­cause each has its own char­ac­ter­is­tics,” she said.

The work will start at Playa de Ta­marit, where the wooden walk­ways are be­ing with­drawn, she added.

“Aer­at­ing the beaches pre­vents the build up of bac­te­ria caused by damp,” ex­plained the coun­cil­lor.
