It is urgent to correct the invasion of the beaches of Mazatlán: Sergio Valle

Sinaloa.- From 75 years ago, Mazatlan presents an excessive invasion of beach areas, behind the construction of lodging centers, mainly to North of the city, said Sergio Valle Espinosa, former president of the Mazatlán Ecological Council.

Old problem

The environmentalist indicated that the proliferation of buildings in the federal zone corresponds to a problem of the old regime, which allowed abuse of authority and misapplication of the law.

He said that at that time any businessman could request the consent of the 3 levels of government to be able to carry out a construction in places where they are not supposed to be allowed.

For the erection of a hotel, he specified that a series of requirements must be met by the state, the municipality and the federation, in addition to respecting the distance from the point where the work will be with the waves from the beach.

He asserted that these types of works have proliferated as a result of the growth of the city, after the formation of the Golden Zone and the construction of Cerritos Avenue.

At the bill

Valle Espinosa acknowledged that it is necessary to address the problem of the invasion that presents the soil of the federal zone, because at any moment there could be consequences of nature.

He commented that Cemaz has carried out studies regarding the impact that the growth of this type of works may cause in the bathing areas.

“The movement of the tide has been considered through what is known as littoral transport, where we realize the displacement of the sands, which is risky for buildings that have been built on sandy soil.”

He assured that these types of surfaces must be respected, since the constructions that are carried out there would be seriously affected, so they could come down.

He acknowledged that the environment has been destroyed on the beaches, where various constructions have been made, which is reflected in the erosion that the bathing areas have been presenting.
