We can ask to "give priority" to the areas closest to the town of Mazarrón when it comes to tackling the decontamination of mining (08/10/2018)

Andrés Pedreño, regional deputy, has indicated that before the amount of work that must be addressed in the Sierra Minera de Mazarrón for years of "neglect" of the PP government in this matter, the restoration of the area must begin with the mining sites closer to the urban core.

It is a measure of "urgency" and serves to "cover the negligence of the PP government that has not enabled in these 20 years or a single policy to decontaminate mining land, something that could have been addressed effectively by only meeting the current law on waste and contaminated soil. "

Pedreño explained that the initiative of Podemos requires an intervention plan on old deposits of sludge and waste dumps of toxic and dangerous waste from metal mining, located in Cerro San Cristóbal, Los Perules and Sierras de Mazarrón.

Within this plan, what we demand is that given the high concentration of toxic and dangerous waste that is provided with a "very high concentration of heavy metals and metalloids, the sites closest to the town are decontaminated".

In addition, the deputy of Podemos has detailed that the polluter "must pay." Those who have contaminated can not leave in. We must demand that the owners comply with the law and take care of this problem. integration in the landscape of those deposits of mining waste that are going to be restored ".

Also, Andrés Pedreño has stressed that there are a number of basic instruments that should be part of a policy of contaminated soils, various measures that prevent the arrival of runoff from the mines to the urban area, as well as closure of the wells of the hill mining of Mazarrón.

"We also have to protect our school population," said Pedreño, since "they are the most vulnerable." Therefore, the motion calls for the adoption of precautionary measures in schools such as the Public School La Cañadica or the IES Felipe II, as well as in recreational areas, common areas and children's playground located a few meters from the vicinity of the old toxic and dangerous waste deposits ".

For the deputy of Podemos, another basic point is the installation of a measuring station for air quality, integrated into the Regional Network, in order to determine possible risk situations for the population.

Finally, Andrés Pedreño regretted that "knowing what we know about the Sierra Minera de La Union-Cartagena, El Hondón, Sierra de Mazarrón, has not developed a serious, responsible and rigorous policy of contaminated soil. you have to invent nothing, just apply the law, waste legislation and contaminated soil that is 1998.
