With this notice from the local government (SSP-CC), published on the social networks of the Buenavistero town hall, restrictions on water consumption already affect the seven municipalities in the northwest of Tenerife. Excess fluoride, specific breakdowns or non-compliance with some facilities force Public Health to discourage the consumption of tap water at all La Guancha and in areas of Icod de los Vinos, San Juan de la Rambla, El Tanque, Garachico, Los Silos and now also Buenavista del Norte.
The mayor of Buenavistero, Antonio González Fortes (SSP), recognizes that at the moment it is not possible to talk about the duration of the restriction, since it depends on the intervention in the aforementioned EDAS. The excess of fluoride keeps La Guancha with a total restriction in the consumption of water for the entire population, who should not use it for drinking or cooking food. In the case of Icod It is also valid for residents of all ages in the nuclei of La Florida, Cueva del Viento, Lomo Las Lajas, La Patita and Los Piquetes. On The tank it only affects San José de los Llanos.
The restriction is maintained for children under 8 years of age in Erjos and Ruigómez, in El Tanque; the helmet, San Felipe, Campino and San Marcos, in Icod de los Vinos, and in most of San Juan de la Rambla: el casco, La Vera, Lomo Guanche, Las Rosas, San José, Los Quevedos, El Rosario and Fuente del Bardo. In addition, there are other restrictions due to “various breaches of the water supply facilities” that affect the entire population of Ruigómez, in El Tanque, and the residents around Cueva del Viento, Penichet, Santa Bárbara, Cruz del Camino and Las Hayas Recreational Park, in Icod.
Last week the restrictions were added to the Garachico and the coastal nucleus of La Caleta de Interián, in Los Silos. The Garachico Town Hall has punctually restricted the water supply in La Montañeta, San Juan del Reparo and Genovés, also due to the actions carried out in the EDAS Altos de Icod. The local government (CC) does not know for now how long this setback will last, which has forced to establish cuts in the supply during the night so that the deposit can recover its level.
Los Silos Town Hall also announced, through a side of the mayor, Macarena Fuentes (CC), the restriction on water consumption in the coastal neighborhood of La Caleta, due to the urgent repair and waterproofing of the only basin in the municipal reservoir that supplies water to this population center. These restrictions are expected to last at least one more week. Tap water cannot be used to drink, cook or prepare food in the Casa Amarilla urbanization; the Exterior and Interián avenues, and in the streets La Marina, José Dorta, El Norte, La Luna, La Luz, El Sol, San Andrés, Los Silos, Plaza San Andrés, Avelina, El Rosario, Las Almejas or Miramar, among others .
