San Pedro del Pinatar (Murcia), Feb 10 (EFE).- The “opacity and lack of transparency” during the process, the incompatibility between the Tagus river basin plan and that of the Segura or the need for ecological flows to be Compatible with the transfer will be some of the main arguments that the Murcian Government will use in the appeal before the Supreme Court against the hydrological plan.
This was confirmed by the president of the autonomous community, Fernando López Miras, when asked by journalists during the inauguration of a new residence for people with disabilities in San Pedro del Pinatar, on the occasion of the publication this Friday in the Bulletin State Official (BOE) of these new basin plans approved by the Council of Ministers.
This publication is for Miras the “consummation of the greatest political attack, the greatest outrage, the greatest damage that the Government of Pedro Sánchez has done to the Region of Murcia”, because it will mean cutting in half the water that can be received annually through of the transfer from the Tagus to the Segura.
That decision, he lamented, “will leave thousands of families on the street” throughout the Levante and will deprive them of an “essential resource”, because “water in the Region of Murcia is everything”.
The cut in transferable flows, he has warned, will not only affect agriculture, but, as production falls, food prices will increase.
For all these reasons, Miras has reiterated that work is already underway on the appeal that will be filed before the Supreme Court and in which various legal arguments will be reflected, among which he has highlighted the “opacity and lack of transparency” that has surrounded the process. preparation of basin plans.
Likewise, it has considered a powerful argument the fact that the Tagus basin plan is “incompatible” with that of Segura, as warned by the Council of State, so they cannot be fulfilled simultaneously.
In addition, the Council of State also pointed out the need to make the ecological flows set for the Tagus compatible with the maintenance of the transfer, something that has not been fulfilled by reducing it by half.
Lastly, he regretted that it is planned to review the transfer exploitation rules in less than a year because this will mean, he said, that the central government once again “decide that less water arrives” in the region “without scientific documents” to support that position and only because “they have decided to prioritize some Spaniards over others”.
Miras has insisted that the autonomous community is not going to give up and that the central government will have it “in front” whenever it takes this type of measure.
