For it shall be removed from the bay about 2 million cubic meters of overburden, which will move to the short mining of San Jose, in the same province and autonomous community.

Also includes the regeneration of the new beach, providing sand to improve it.

BACKGROUND OF THE ACTION

Portman Bay was polluted, until 1992 discharges from mines of La Union.

48 million m3 of mining waste was poured.

In order to remove the spilled material in the bay, regenerating and restoring its environmental values, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment has already contracted in 2011 the implementation of a project.

Faced with irregularities in the procurement process it will be desisted from that performance.

In 2014 public tender for the granting of an administrative concession for the same purpose was tendered.

In this tender only one company that finally did not provide the documents required in the procedure was introduced, so this had to be declared void by the Ministry.

COMMITMENT OF THE MINISTRY WITH BAY REGENERATION

However, the Ministry shows its commitment to the regeneration of the Bay and its commitment to carry out the action to return to the area its environmental and scenic wealth with maximum guarantees both technical and environmental, in collaboration with the Autonomous Region and the City Council of the Union and within the framework of strict compliance with the law.
