La Muley dry dam is conditioned for water storage
The Cabildo of Fuerteventura, through the Ministry of Works and Machinery directed by the president of the island institution, Sergio Lloret, is carrying out cleaning work on the existing dry dam in the ravine of La Muley, in the municipality of Antigua, with the aim of maintaining these water storage spaces in conditions for when the rains arrive. This was stated by the president of the Cabildo, who this morning visited the works accompanied by the mayor of Antigua, Matías Peña García, and the Minister of Water, David de Vera.

 The conditioning of this dry dam, with the capacity to store 35,500 cubic meters of water, is part of the "firm commitment of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura to avoid the loss of water resources of our island," said the president. It is a joint action between the Works and Machinery Service of the Cabildo and the Insular Water Council of Fuerteventura (CIAF) to "increase the recharge of aquifers and avoid the loss of both water and fertile land material on our island", explained Sergio Lloret, "in addition to a great boost for our primary sector".

This dry dam is located in the ravine of La Muley, in the Triquivijate basin, near the area known as Nuevo Horizonte. For the mayor of Antigua, its cleanliness is essential for the primary sector of the island. Matías Peña congratulated the Cabildo and the Insular Water Council "for this initiative to clean the ponds because this way we can try to retain the maximum volume of water when it rains and I trust that this action will be extended to all the ponds of the island because it is very important for the primary sector of Fuerteventura".
In this same line, the Minister of Water, David de Vera, said, "we are working to take advantage of the endogenous resource of water, so that in the rainy season it is stored and maintained in the water tables of the island, not only for a later use for the primary sector but also so that all that material of the land is kept in the fertile lands". That is why, he added, it is "so important to maintain those water tables so necessary for agriculture and livestock on the island of Fuerteventura."
