The mayoral candidate Gianluca Cannavò: “At risk of public safety”.

A few days after the end of the summer season and with the approaching showers, the risk of flooding increases in various areas of the city of Acireale. The mayor candidate of Acireale Gianluca Cannavò, who intervenes to solicit urgent interventions by the municipal administration, raised the alarm about the lack of cleaning of manholes and drains and the consequent hydrogeological risks. What happened last night in the Marche is a warning. Over the years, the hydrogeological problem has become an increasingly concrete and current threat. We saw what happened last night in the Marche region, where we hope that the missing will be found and that the death toll will not increase further – comments Cannavò – Most of the manholes, grates and drains are blocked by debris, waste organic, earth and sand. A situation that jeopardizes the safety of citizens. Now our climate is more and more similar to the tropical one and it is not uncommon to see violent storms. Rainwater that does not find an outlet to drain runs the risk of causing considerable damage to people and property ”. In recent days Cannavò has carried out a series of inspections in the area, noting the absence of maintenance and cleaning interventions. “In the center but also in the hamlets, such as S. Caterina, I was able to verify that no maintenance has been done – he continues – It is irresponsible not to plan annually and in advance the cleaning of all the elements connected to the disposal of rainwater, to let the waters flow smoothly. I hope – concludes Cannavò – that the municipal administration takes up this appeal and intervenes promptly, putting an end to this risk situation ”.
