The CC-PNC group of the Cabildo de Tenerife requests that the pending infrastructures be executed to combat what the nationalists consider “drought” on the island, as well as the low level of irrigation water ponds. Although a drought situation has not been officially declared in Tenerife, the nationalist councilor Antolín Bueno points out that “the lack of action and management by the PSOE has aggravated the problem because instead of providing solutions and listening to the demands of the sector, the councilor He has dedicated himself to selling a story that does not conform to reality. According to Bueno, “it is not true that we have a good level of water in the island rafts and in fact, some are already bottoming out and the mud is visible, as is the case in Valle Molina or San Antonio, which serve the northeast region of Tenerife”.
Bueno adds that “the irresponsibility of the island councilor for Agriculture, Javier Parrilla, is alarming, as he is not only unable to find solutions, but also tries to mask the figures to say that there is no problem with water. The first thing he has to do is recognize that there is a problem. And then analyze measures such as the reuse of all the treated water on the island to be used for agriculture. Or you can also drive water from one municipality to another.
The nationalist adviser indicates that «the problem of drought with climate change requires adequate planning and action by our leaders. We cannot depend on whether it rains or not. Investments have been paralyzed and the only solution was the Filomena pass, which left a good amount of water, but the primary sector cannot wait to see if it rains or not.
For the nationalist representation in the Cabildo de Tenerife, “the question of sitting down and looking for innovative solutions and not denying reality and waiting to see if the solution falls from the sky in the form of rain.” A warning that coincides, precisely, with a special warning due to an adverse meteorological phenomenon that foresees significant rainfall.
