Pollution has been going on for years
LA LÍNEA The sewage outlet on the Poniente beach (the Western one) has once again seen to be dumping sewage into the sea. The matter was raised by local residents, who complained about an 'unendurable' smell. They also pointed out that this offered a very bad image as the promenade area is the major access to the town. This is nothing new, of course, as La Línea's sewage system is notoriously deficient and has been for years, with spillages not only at the Poniente beach, but also at Levante and El Burgo, all of which have outlets. The beaches are frequently closed in the summer, although they are usually blocked up to avoid the problem during the high season.
