The Instituto Español de Oceanografía (IEO) has warned of long-term problems to the marine environment on the Mar Menor if nothing is done to stop the likely flooding that would be caused if the sea breaks through the barrier provided at La Manga.

The IEO’s report says that contamination in the area has accumulated over recent years, and that urgent work is needed to fill up local beaches with sand as a better system of infrastructures to stop the potential of the Mediterranean Sea breaking through. The report was written before the bad weather of the last six weeks ravaged the area.
