Torrevieja’s mayor, Jose Manuel Dolon, has written to the boss of the city’s water and sewage treatment plant to do something about the stench that is affecting parts of the area, like San Roque.

Dolon says that the residents of San Roque have had to put up with the problem for some time, which caused them to organise a petition calling for action.

The residents have had the backing of the Ombudsman in the past for something to be done, but it’s the first time that Torrevieja council has supported their position.
