The unused water tank

Remember back in 2007 they built the water tank above the campsite at La Pedrera? Its purpose was to supply water to the houses that were being built in Sector D-6 and at the same time cure the lack of water pressure in apartment blocks higher than 3 storeys. The cost of building was 512,357 euros.

Seven years on and the tower remains unused because the council at the time and since have failed to invest the 70,000 euros necessary to install connecting pumps.

Whilst we are talking of water, the reservoir next to our estate was relined a few years ago. I recall that it took weeks of work with trucks and diggers to complete the scheme and yet the reservoir has only rain water at the bottom of it.
