Puertollano (Ciudad Real), Feb 17 (EFE).- The president of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, has warned that if Levante “is not supportive” and asks to paralyze the decision on the ecological flow of the Tagus, Castilla -La Mancha will demand full compliance with the five judgments of the Supreme Court that set that flow from the outset, without the deadlines included in the basin plan.
During the inauguration of the Agency for Research and Innovation of Castilla-La Mancha, in Puertollano (Ciudad Real), García-Page has criticized that the “solidarity” of this community with other regions does not have reciprocity, referring to the request of the Valencian Community to paralyze in a precautionary manner the application of the ecological flows contemplated in the Tagus Plan, which causes the cut in flows of the transfer to the Segura.
García-Page has recalled that the application of ecological flows derives from five sentences handed down by the Supreme Court, which Castilla-La Mancha will ask to be complied with from the outset if Levante “believes that solidarity is only one way, not back” .
In this sense, he explained that Castilla-La Mancha has defended applying the ecological flows little by little, over several years, but has made it clear that if they continue with the stoppage they will demand compliance with the sentences from the beginning.
He has argued that when a decision is asked to be halted it is because it will cause irreparable damage, and has stressed that “what has irreparable damage is the Tagus, which looks like a sewer”, and added that in Castilla-La Mancha “we are playing a lot” For example, because without water, companies do not set up.
He has also lamented that Castilla-La Mancha has thousands of hectares that could not be irrigated due to lack of water, while the area of Spain with the least water is the one with the most irrigated hectares.
