Patience and prudence is what the mayor of Garachico, José Heriberto González, asks before andl closure of the pier beach due to the presence of algae remains. The measure, adopted on Saturday afternoon, is still in force, pending the result of the analysis of the water sample collected yesterday. “We hope that the results are tomorrow (for today) and, according to what they indicate, the appropriate decision will be made,” said the Garachiquense councilor.
The coincidence of the situation on the weekend makes it difficult to reopen this beach to the bathroom, because the laboratories remain inoperative during these days. «I repeat that the main thing here is prevention and maximum precaution. We are not going to allow the bathroom again until there are some results on the state of the waters, “the mayor said through social networks in response to the doubts raised.
From the beginning, González explained that there have been no discharges in this area for six years, At least, although he did not rule out that the cause of the great green spot (which has been diluted) has another origin, something that will be determined by analytics.
