The archaeological remains of the town hall square will be put in value (21/05/2019)

The hydraulic work of the late nineteenth century that exists under the current Town Hall Square will be put into value at the end of the renovation and improvement of the environment that are carried out today.

Both the work archaeologist and the municipal technicians see as a more viable option the enabling of a stretch of glazed floor with an explanatory panel that talks about the find, the time to which it belonged and the utility it lent at the time.

The archaeologist, María José Morcillo, reflects in a report the care with which one works in the area in order not to damage the works and to preserve the remains that already present some damage from wiring actions prior to the start of the works.

The document states that "following the guidelines set by Cultural Assets, a study of the hydraulic work of the 19th century was carried out with an analysis and documentary record through photographs, its georeferencing and its location in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento.

The guidelines that were followed after the appearance of the findings were, first, an analysis of the construction technique and proceeded to see if archaeological materials such as ceramics or metals appeared to date these dates, but only the conduits arose without archaeological context .

The structures are built, one with masonry and lined inside and the other forming a barrel vault of exposed brick, the latter being larger and larger (90 meters long and approximately 1.20 meters wide).

Both works have a chronology of the nineteenth century and are hydraulic works since the secondary pipes have a slight inclination towards the interior for the collection of rainwater, in addition to the appearance of a manhole for cleaning

After a preliminary study, it was consulted in the municipal archive of Mazarrón, the "project for the pipeline that will lead the drinking water from the springs of the Rambla del Garrobo to the Villa de Mazarrón", written in 1867, coinciding the plans and the layout of those pipes with the constructions that appeared in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento.
