Airport Strikes Continue

First, a reminder that strike action continues today and tomorrow at Alicante Elche Miguel Hernandez airport, with security staff in dispute over their working conditions.

As on previous occasions, if you are flying today or Saturday, please allow yourself extra time to get through security.

The strikes are for an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon, but they create a knock on effect with long queues.

Water Pollution Problem

Technicians from the Segura Hydrographic Confederation (CHS) have detected, for the first time, specimens of zebra mussels in the La Pedrera reservoir, commonly known as Torremendo lake, which is an invasive species and easily spread.

The infection in La Pedrera joins other reservoirs already affected such as those of Talave, Camarillas and Crevillente.

The Segura Hydrographic Confederation has designed the specific dissemination campaign on the zebra mussel titled: “alert! zebra mussel. Don’t let it stick to you.”

With this initiative, the basin organization aims to raise awareness that anyone can be an involuntary vector of water pollution.

Like many towns across the country, the organisation of festivities as massive as the patron saint and Moors and Christians of El Campello, which are celebrated in October, requires intense work prior to the celebrations, and so in order to finalise every detail, a preparatory meeting was held in which councillors and technicians got together to plane the popular event.
