Residents of three parishes of Lorca against a high tension line of 132,000 volts (12/08/2009)

Aguadero neighborhood groups, Carrasquilla-Campo de Lorca Lopez and Puri have been several letters of complaint to the council, the Ministry of Agriculture and Water and to the European Union, the draft of a high voltage line of 132,000 volts, sponsored by Iberdrola, which aims to build from Hinojar to Eagles and a severely affect the protected areas of LIC (Lugros Community Interest) and SPA (Special Protection of Birds) of the Sierra de Almenara

This draft power line will cause very negative environmental impacts in the Sierra de la Almenara, where along with the mountains of mulberry trees and Cabo Cope, in the period 2002 to 2006, the LIFE Project of the European Union spent more than a million euros in the conservation and management of Bonelli's eagle, also the route will pass by a score of inhabited houses, businesses and farm buildings and crops

This line will be fueled by the recycling plant Hinojar slurry, which was once installed for the recycling and electricity for own consumption and that in the near future, with the supply of natural gas, produce electricity to supply Cope Marine .

For residents it is difficult to understand you do this tremendous expense to protect the nesting grounds of endangered birds and then you put a stone's throw from a power line which is a major cause of death of these birds.

It becomes very difficult to understand you do this tremendous expense and not want to adequately compensate those affected by the high voltage line.

The residents demanded to stop the project and the study of alternative designs that do not involve environmental and social impact as great as for example the proposal that they presented and which would run from the highway Hinojar to Mazarrón and Totana, there Eagles up, saying that it already has been executed by the same environmental impact, and a line parallel to them would cause a negligible impact and prevent disorders of lying to the SCI and SPA areas.
