SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 11. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The councilor for Municipal Cooperation and Housing of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Zebenzuí Chinea, and the mayor of San Miguel, Arturo González, have visited the sanitation and purification works that are being carried out in the lower area of San Miguel de Abona for an amount of 2,190,416 euros.
Chinea assures that the works “are advancing at a good pace, which will allow meeting the planned execution deadlines, if they continue like this, and that the new wastewater treatment plant will be available at the end of the year.”
This action is included in the Municipal Cooperation Plan 2018-2021 and is being financed 80 percent by the Cabildo and 20 percent (438,083 euros) by the San Miguel City Council.
The location chosen for the new WWTP is next to the existing ETAR (Wastewater Treatment Station) in the Amarilla Golf urbanization, “to which it will be connected for better interoperability of the wastewater treatment systems in the area”, explains the counselor.
The objective, Chinea abounds in a note, is to improve the treatment and discharge of wastewater from the lower area of San Miguel, which includes the nuclei of Las Chafiras (lower area), Las Cabezadas, El Guincho, Amarilla Golf, Golf del South and San Blas.
“With this, we will not only respond to a historical environmental problem, but this work will mean greater compliance with the European directive on sanitation by the municipality,” he concluded.
The mayor of San Miguel, Arturo González, emphasizes that they are “very necessary works” to advance in the completion of the integral water cycle, for which they are happy that they continue to develop and finish on time.
Arturo González assures that the objective is to convert San Miguel into a more sustainable municipality “and for that this work is fundamental”.
