The beaches of Valencia reopened on Thursday due to the level of bacteria

The City Council of Valencia has reopened the beaches of Malvarrosa and La Devesa, closed since Thursday to exceed the permitted levels of the bacterium Escherichia coli, "before the good results obtained in the analyzes" carried out.

Municipal sources have said that they "regret" the inconvenience caused by the closure of the beaches and have specified that from the administration "always have to ensure a good quality of water to the public for bathing" and "for public responsibility should be taken these measures if the results do not meet scrupulously with the optimum levels of quality, today the results are very good ".

Municipal sources reported yesterday that there is no record of problems in the treatment plants of El Saler and Pinedo, and that the possible cause of the arrival of these bacteria could be the increase in the flow of irrigation water, which could have washed water with these bacteria .

In mid-June, the municipalities of Valencia and Alboraya restrained the bath one day on the beaches of Malvarrosa, Cabanyal and Patacona due to the finding of coliform bacteria in a water analysis carried out by the Ministry of the Environment.

Also, at the end of June, the beaches of Patacona and Port Saplaya Nord in Alboraya (Valencia) were closed for two days to the bathroom, having detected high levels of microbiological parameters.
