I am expanding my dear Martin, linking water with Monserrat (an ancient history of popular hues religious who just seven years of rain without stop). Hamdi Ulukaya refugees contributes greatly to this topic. While my dear Mayor claiming in the plenary session on Monday that the consortium of the costa brava had secured you water until September (which don’t panic!). And under hand, send me a Royal Decree of the Government of the region on exceptional measures and emergency of obligatory fulfilment on the use of water. (Complaints and sanctions!). Perhaps for this reason, these small notes which I have sent to my dear Martin as a souvenir and complement I note with sadness.
Memories!. The barrel of water in Catalonia entered into force on 1 April 2000, i.e. eight years ago. They said that through the barrel of water user would contribute to the costs of the service of the water cycle: investments in dams and infrastructure of production, transport etc likewise existed the hydrological plan for the internal basins of Catalonia, which was approved in 1998 that he described the hydrological status of 1992 and foresaw the situation in 2002 and 2012 as first and second horizon. In his planned performances were improving the guarantee of supply and quality of water in Catalonia. Ever hear that they said with some pride: these basins (internal) constitute the District of river basin or river basin of Catalonia and are the exclusive competence of the Generalitat (regional government) and its management is entrusted to the Catalan water agency. OLE!, already have autonomy and now are how going to blame Madrid?. It seems that the important thing is not the drought we are experiencing now, but the work that has been done over these thirty years of regional government and perhaps since 2003 have failed to have the conviction to be at the beginning of what makes the European directive (called DMA), in which it is advisable to involve as many people as possible in that is important!.
I.e., the application of the DMA that is conducted through a participatory process that ensures the information, consultation and the active involvement of citizens and entities for validation of the diagnosis with the drafting of programmes of measures. Perhaps for this reason, has left that Royal Decree of the regional government alerting every living creature that must be looking if the neighbouring pool is filled or empty or if tourists that will come in the summer may swim only at sea or in the pool or jacuzzi or the garden with autochthonous plantations they showering in full or washing only feet leaving the beaches will be why don’t want to ask me: what happen in the costa brava once we aim our thirst and we stay alone, without tourists and water?. I.e. after September. What is clear is that our representatives who have worked so hard for our well-being, will not get wet a hair. And if they insist, will return you to vote, for its good management.
