Footbath at Poniente beach
Furthermore, Marcet referred to the problem with the footbath at Poniente Beach that currently uses potable water. The councillor explained the current situation and he said, "when the works of Paseo de Poniente began by the Generalitat Valenciana, these works involved the removal of the seawater supplier for the footbath at Poniente beach". Thus, "it was necessary to connect the footbath temporarily with potable water to maintain the service for all beach users".
The Water Cycle councilor said that although the replacement project to supply the footbath is included, for various technical and administrative reasons, it was decided to exclude it and not delay the execution of the works of Paseo de Poniente. The Agencia Valenciana de Turismo could not affor to build another supplier for the footbath, so it had to be filed by Benidorm City Council. A year later, we have finally received official response to this request on 6 March 2015, and this has been favorable, but subject to a prior environmental processing unspecified to be resolved by the Department of Environment ".
