SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 12 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife, through the Insular Water Council, has approved a budget of 208,319 euros for the drafting of a project to install a desalination plant in the Güímar Valley, as indicated by the Minister of Sustainable Development and Fight against Change Climate, Javier Rodríguez, who adds that it will have “the capacity to desalinate 21,000 cubic meters of water per day, with the possibility of reaching up to 42,000, quite considerable quantities and supplying the entire Valley with it.”
The counselor states in a note that “the Güímar valley is an area that suffers continuous tension from the water point of view” to the point that water prices “are more variable than in other neighboring counties.”
Rodríguez Medina has stressed the importance of supplying water, sanitation and purification resources to a space such as the Valle de Güímar industrial estate, “of special importance due to its economic activity not only for the region but for the entire island”.
In this regard, the island councilor emphasizes the “significant investment” that the Cabildo is making in the Güímar Valley through actions in the area, such as the urban wastewater treatment plants (EDARU) and industrial wastewater treatment plants (EDARI).
For the installation of the EDAM, the Cabildo has already obtained the corresponding land for its installation.
