extreme drought urgent summit due

Urgent summit due to the extreme drought

Councils and city councils summoned to an urgent summit due to the extreme drought.

The Deputy Ministry of Water will meet with them on the 11th in Las Palmas to agree on savings measures and promote desalination projects

The island of Tenerife declared a water emergency yesterday and so will other councils in the Canary Islands, as have municipalities such as Fasnia and Arico, or Vallehermoso and Hermigua, in La Gomera. The driest autumn and winter in living memory in this century and much of the previous one has left the aquifers practically dry and the reservoirs barely reach 40% of their capacity, figures typical of summer and not of these dates, when in Tenerife, for example, the reservoirs are usually above 72% of their storage capacity.

Faced with this water situation, the Deputy Ministry of Water of the Government of the Canary Islands, led by Marcos Lorenzo, former mayor of Tijarafe, has convened a meeting for March 11 with the representatives of the cabildos, island water councils and town councils of the Islands to try to agree on measures to save both water for human consumption and irrigation. at the same time to know the momentum of the desalination plants that are planned.
