Urgent action needed in barranco
Residents of Los Realejos are demanding action to clear up a barranco water channel and avoid further flooding problems.
They also want tests to be carried out to see if water in the area of Palo Blanco is suitable for recycling.
The request from the local council and residents of La Carrera is being made to Tenerife Cabildo and specifcally the Island Water Board.
The Mayor, Manuel Domínguez said they had first asked for the removal of a shed and the widening of the water channel two and a half years ago but nothing had been done.
Residents had already suffered flooding and some run-off problems on days of heavy rain and feared that the presence of the “caseta” would jeopardise the correct water course.
The council says the matter must be solved as soon as possible in the interests of safety.
