Question 14 November 2013 Ashley Fox (ECR-Con)

Subject: Sewage contamination affecting Gibraltar’s coastline

Sewage contamination from La Linea in Spain continues to cause serious pollution along part of Gibraltar’s coastline, despite previous assurances from the Spanish Government that no sewage would be discharged from this site after the end of 2011. I am informed that this contamination is stemming from a storm drainpipe illegally discharging raw sewage towards Gibraltar’s Western Beach.

According to data compiled by the Gibraltar Environmental Agency(1), the situation is worsening, with sewage contamination from La Linea reaching Western Beach. This is creating a serious risk to public health, and as a result the beach has had to be closed on a number of occasions.

What action is the Commission taking to bring an end to this persistent pollution of Gibraltar’s waters?
