Dredging the Segura

Rojales Rio Segura
Over the past few weeks work has been going on to remove the silt from the River running through the town, they are now working down at the basin near Rojales bridge. to do the job efficiently the river is dammed and trucks bring in dry soil which is mixed with the silt by an excavator and then put back in the trucks to be taken away, It used to get very smelly along this stretch of river so hopefully when it is finished there will not be this problem. The ducks and geese dont look very happy about it and it can only be hoped the fish have all moved upstream.
