  1. are: Vera Playa Beach pollution

    The backup sewage — laden with bacteria and other disease-producing pathogens – has been diverted into the sea by way of a machine-made ditch allowing the sewage to run into the sea next to the highly-populated Vera Playa naturist resort area, one hour from the city of Almaria. Highly populated area with swimmers and sun bathers and children playing in the sand. There is NO warning of what is being emptied into the sea. Someone reported their child becoming ill while playing in the area. The stench is of fecal material. What is going on with health regulations? An answer, please, for the residents and visitors of Vera Playa.
