Rio GuadiaroMunicipal workers in San Roque have carried out urgent works to  clear a channel at the mouth of the Rio Guadiaro in Sotogrande which has been blocked by a build up of sand for the last couple of weeks.

This has led to stagnation in the river which has threatened the life of fish and other marine creatures in the rive due to lack of oxygen in the water.

Machinery was brought in to create a 5 metre wide channel which will allow the waters to flow again bringing fresh, oxygen rich water from upstream.

A local environmental pressure group, Asociación Ecologista Verdemar, have repeatedly called for action from the Coastal Authority who have promised to dredge the entrance, but the town hall stepped in to create a channel in the meantime, given the urgency of the situation.
