Hi

I understand there has been a few problems with the water supply in Turre recently and was wondering if this is affecting the supply to Agua Nueva ?

Just read this in the spainish news paper

TURRE is facing an unprecedented water crisis amid cuts in the supply and fears over tap water quality, Costa Almería News can reveal.

The town is up in arms following months of intermittent water cuts caused by blocked pipes - the result of limescale build-up – as well as abnormal levels of iron and sulphate, a sign that tap water is unfit to drink.

It has emerged that council staff have been hard at work trying to unblock the town’s pipes and that water company Galasa was subsequently called in to offer technical assistance earlier this month.

Following an investigation two weeks ago the firm reported that Turre’s tap water, which is obtained from a well in Sierra Cabrera, is also unfit to drink, according to deputy mayor Rodrigo Sanchez.

Hi all

I was wondering what the state of play was with the water too as I had read the same in the on-line version of the Almeria News. Early last year we were all told that there would only be enough water until July (2010) and that Galasa were starting work in the summer and that we would have to make sure we had 600 euros to pay straight away to have the water system. We are still waiting!!! We are coming out on 9th May but don't know what the true water situation is out there from the people that live there. We have a water tank which will help but was wondering whether anyone from Turre or Agua Nueva could give an idea of what is happening there.

Really looking foward to coming out again. Although the weather in the uk is glorious at the mo!! icon_cool.gif

Once you are connected to Galasa, you will be able to drink the water straight out off the tap just like here in the UK,when in Spain ALL my ice cubes are made from tap water and our friends have never had a dodgy tummy

Hi

Coming out tomorrow and heard nothing about the water situation. I e-mailed the committee that was set up on Agua Nueva to deal with this and other such issues and they haven't got back to me either - maybe they've just given up, I wouldn't blame them icon_lol.gif

Looking forward to coming out, hopefully buying a car, seeing the old place again and relaxing.

Best wishes to all

Hi,

Agua Nueva water is as bad as ever. There are times when there is no water at all, the longest period was 8 days, but is usually only a few hours or a day.

What is upsetting is the water quality, very often it is brown, the colour of instant coffee. Not drinkable, will not trust it to clean my teeth. We only cook with bottled water.
White clothing is nigh impossible to keep white and loos look like they have not been flushed.

We were supposed to be getting Galasa water, but all has gone quiet. Turre water is Agricultural quality, OK for plants and animals.

Taking in samples to the town hall is a futile exercise, they make the right noises, but do nought.

Jimbo

Thanks Jimbo

Yes, the water was the same lovely quality as always!! icon_confused.gif We do have a water tank, I think most people on Agua Nueva do now and luckily that seems to do the trick although with it I don't know when the water is on or off. Road names are up I notice! Ours is on our wall (Calle Zugena) but we're not registered as being in Calle Zurgena as they thought our front door was the other side on Calle Vera!! Now we have had to put our address on the side wall as it could confuse people who visit. When we went to the town hall and spoke to Manuel, he said that they are going to have a postal service on Agua Nueva! Don't know when that might be - probably when they get the water from galasa!!! Like the pedestrian crossing outside our place for the one car that goes round there a day! We waited and crossed the road in front of our neighbour - very slowly - in the end they gave up trying to get past and came in for a drink! ha. Anyway, had a lovely time. Look forward to being back very soon.

Kind regards
