His waters lucían an unpleasant whitish foam in his surface, what obviously did that so many citizens like associations environmentalists put the cry in the sky since the authorities did not do at all to remedy the situation.
It was then when it began to realise an investment of 640 million euros for the construction of a total of 97 debuggers. It drained the river, cleaned his bottom and prevented that they continued the poured industrial, and thanks to this nowadays has an appearance much more appeal in addition to that numerous species that considered that they had disappeared returned again to this part of the Safe river.
