Sewage dumping in sea

Hi, my first time posting a message so please bear with me.

We have been staying in golf del sur for the last 3+ weeks and really enjoyed crabbing outside our apt until we noticed a brown slick in the sea near the shore about two weeks ago covering the area from los abrigos to the marina. The brown stuff seems to be constant and now on the rocks and smelly. The last time we crabbed, we saw bits of brown stuff that looks like poo in our bucket. Since we have a five years old and his number one hobby is crabbing, we naturally enquired and a resident told us that a hotel is dumping raw sewage in the sea. We have not crabbed locally since. Such a pity as it is so lovely where we are staying. Can anyone shed any light regarding this please? Thanks.

This has been going on for years in the Golf and the smell has been getting worse for years to. i have seen many times them pumping the drainage system next to volcanic islands and the smell unbearable that times.

Enjoy

it is my understanding that they have built a new sewerage station somewhere down past the palms /pebble beach area some year ago and then done nothing as regards commissioning it ..Anyone able to shed any more info. on this .. and why dont all the local restaurants/ hotels etc. mount a campaign against this awful smell .. surely they should report it to the competent EU authority..because it surely must contravene some regulations ..
