The Grand Palace Consumer Protection Association said that the Al-Saada area suffered a lot of damage due to water leakage and flooding of the watercourse flowing from the mountains, plains and small valleys surrounding the population.
The association itself emphasized that this watercourse causes flooding, especially with the suffocation of sewer channels and rainwater leakage channels, which negatively affects the normal course of life, creating obstacles to traffic on the road and in some neighborhoods.
The Moroccan Consumer Protection Association in Ksar el Kebir called on the governor of Larache province to intervene urgently to open an investigation with the authority responsible for the management and control of these floods, while taking legal and administrative action regarding the case.
The statement, obtained by Hespress, calls on regional and local authorities to form a cell to manage and track the file, especially since the Met Office predicts the region will experience significant rainfall.
The same source indicated that the Independent Collective Agency for Water and Electricity Distribution is called upon to intervene urgently to clean up rainwater runoff gutters and channels, while stepping up the role of the Cleanup Authority in monitoring and managing these gutters and channels during the intense rainy season.
The statement also calls for the authorized cleaning sector management company to intensify the process of cleaning the streets and alleys of urban areas, especially where street vendors live.
The same association called on the Minister of the Interior to urgently intervene to build a protective dam that reduces the flow of water from the watercourse coming from the mountains, plains and valleys adjacent to the Tashkil Al-Saada district, with the expansion of the sewer network inside the microdistrict, calling on the collective council accept this file.
