XABIA MAYOR SPEAKS OUT ABOUT WATER SHORTAGES
As the high demand of the summer months combine with the ongoing and very serious drought situation, mayor Jose Chulvi has defended suspension of water supply to other municipalities: "Fifteen years ago, the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia took the brave decision to build a seawater desalination plant. At the time, it was a bold resolution to develop such an innovative and ambitious public entity, with no financial help from external public administrations and committing the town to an investment of no less than 24 million euros ... If we have to choose between stopping the sale of water to neighbouring towns or leave Xàbia citizens without water, it would be a painful decision but one which it is clear had to be taken."

XÀBIA RAISES PUBLIC AWARENESS OF TIGER MOSQUITO
The Ayuntamiento de Xàbia has issued a warning about the presence of the Asian tiger mosquito in the municipality. About 2mm to 10mm in length, this invasive species is especially active during daylight hours in the warmer months, biting aggressively causing uncomfortable symptoms such as itching, swelling and the occasional allergic reaction. Unlike other species, the ideal breeding habitats are shallow pools of water at elevated temperatures so it is essential to have the assistance of the public to help eradicate these mosquitos.
