installing treatment betancuria water plant own looking

Betancuria looking at installing own water treatment plant
Radio Sintonia:

Betancuria studies the feasibility of installing a water treatment plant on its coast.

The mayor of Betancuria Marcelino Sardinia announced today in La rosa de Fuerteventura that the city council he presides over has commissioned the team of Professor Roque Calero, a study on the feasibility of installing a water treatment plant on its coast that guarantees the supply of water to the neighbors.

The lack of rain, "it rains less and less on the island and therefore the dry periods are longer", to which is added, argues Sardinia, the serious problems of recent years in the supply of the Supply Consortium. Thesecircumstances make it necessary to find a solution to respond to the population. In this sense, he said that water production for agriculture and livestock is also contemplated.

Calero's study "is quite advanced" and proposes the installation of the aforementioned infrastructure somewhere on the coast between El Jurado and Playa del Valle.

As the mayor recalls, "water is very important for Fuerteventura, it is not only necessary for human consumption, but also for livestock farms, for agriculture". We are very hopeful, "working decisively and strongly".

In relation to the cost, it is not obvious that we are facing a project that needs a large investment, but there is funding from the European Union for this type of initiative, he stresses.

Finally, Marcelino Sardinia hopes that the project will be completed shortly and its feasibility can be made known.

Tamara: I think this is a brilliant idea and would welcome another one on the coast between Tindaya and El Cotillo. Still keeping the current connections as back up but becoming more self-sufficient. This would also free up water for other areas. Basic redundancy really.

I agree with Tamara surely a number of smaller desalination plants / water treatment works to serve local communities like Tindaya / El Cotillo would be more appropriate, also as I have mentioned before any new large development should have to incorporate this infrastructure similar to a cruise liner.

Chances of that happening are Nil to Zero. The desalination plants are massively expensive to build and use up enormous amounts of energy to operate. And then you have the waste product to deal with which is damaging to the wider environment. To think they might have small desalination plants serving relatively small communities is living in a dream world. With the massive increase in Tourism, tourists and residents alike will just have to get used to poor supply and regular stoppages.
