The Department of Health (sanidad) has issued a unified declaration of potability for the water of Galasa across the Levante.
It comes after an extensive period of government testing of water at 83 urban centres across Carboneras, Mojácar, Turre, Antas, Arboleas, Cuevas del Almanzora, Garrucha, Huércal-Overa, Los Gallardos, Pulpí, Zurgena & Bédar.
Galasa water – high in mineral content- has been swinging in and out of potability for years, depending on how much crud from the dams they’ve been pumping in.
Whether this is a true fact, or simply the politicians responding to the threat of consumer action via the courts, god only knows. I doubt Galasa have updated their system much, and I also doubt that they’ve touched the water distribution systems in towns.
So what they’ve done is said that the water in the town deposits is drinkable. Once it’s gone through all the old pipes in your town to your tap, it’s the luck of the draw…
It’s also a sad state of my general outlook on Spanish politicians that my first reaction was disbelief and suspicion! Whatever happened to my faith in public administration?
