SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Jan. 24 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Pedro Martín, highlighted on Monday the “diligence” of the mayor of Candelaria, Mari Brito, for solving the problem of wastewater in the Güímar industrial estate.
“The homework has been done,” he explained to the media despite the fact that the southern mayor and the former municipal councilors of Candelaria, Arafo and Güímar weigh an indictment for the alleged continued crimes against the environment and prevarication.
Martín has commented that Brito “has been working a lot” to find a solution that “is not easy” because it affects four municipalities and makes everything “slower and more complex”, but in the last two years much progress has been made in the management of the industrial treatment plant and the supply service.
Along these lines, he commented that the purification in the polygon “is almost finished” and is also working together with the State, with an investment of 200 million, to improve the network and create five purification systems that are going to “take a leap” in the management of residual waters on the island and to go from 50% of treated water to almost 90%.
Martín, who is also secretary general of the PSOE, has ruled out that the opening of an oral trial will generate organic consequences for the mayor of Candelaria.
