The petitioner alleges that, in 2016, the EU Court of Justice confirmed the repeated infringement of wastewater treatment provisions in the Pontevedra estuary, following a complaint by the European Commission against Spain prompted by the public health risk arising from inadequate treatment of urban waste water. She objects to the new project, indicating that it would simply relocate the point of discharge into the estuary without actually resolving the problem. She also denounces the fact that the project involving the expansion of the current treatment plant is not being made public and regards this as a breach of Directive 2003/4/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 January 2003 on public access to environmental information.
