Sanitation network treatment
Antequera, 23 May, 2018 – 01:45h
Treatment work on the sanitation network is being carried out during night hours so as not to affect traffic and neighbors.
The municipal environment delegate of the City of Antequera, Juan Alvarez, reported yesterday that the specialized company Gimasur Ambiental is carrying out monitoring and inspection of sanitation arches in order to avoid hygienic health problems arising from urban pests, such as rodents or cockroaches, which are usually more frequent in summer times in all urban enclaves.
The edil explained that this is a “preventive” inspection action carried out in all the neighborhoods of Antequera, seeking to evaluate certain situations and evaluate the cases in which it is necessary to carry out a deratization or sanitary disinfection on the public road “anticipating a demographic explosion”, said Alvarez.
“As a prevention measure in the face of the rise of temperatures and humidity, a global disinfection campaign is taking place over the last month in all the neighborhoods of the city with some degree of cockroach infestation, in order to prevent its greatest incidence in the summer period,” Alvarez said.
In addition, he explained that these work being carried out for disinfection and deratization had been carried out at night, from 22:00 to 04:00 hours, in order to avoid inconvenience to traffic and citizens.
The treated areas have been specifically Parquesol, Parque Verónica, Albarizas, García Prieto, Juan Porras, Nueva Andalucía, Padre Ferris, San José, Girón, La Paz, Los Remedios, Fray Mateo Delgado, Avenida de Málaga, Calle Toledo, San Isidro, La Quinta, Fernández Viagas, San Francisco, Miraflores, Córdoba Road, El Molino, Infante Don Fernando and Picadero streets.
Alvarez reports that the next treatment for pest control is expected to be carried out, based on the experience of previous years, in the months of July and August although, thanks to the early action already carried out, the possible incidents are minimized.
“Both the Environment Area and the Aguas del Torcal company have been working preliminaryly for several weeks on concrete actions that are carried out with the arrival of high temperatures, all with the aim of cleaning and good condition of sanitation.”
