Guía suggests new water tank
Tenerife Cabildo is considering creating a water tank on the mountainside of Guía de Isora.
The local council has asked the insular corporation to build the facility, taking advantage of a natural spring and therefore able to serve helicopters in case of fire.
The water tank would be installed in the upper area of Tágara where there are several springs with water flow throughout the year.
Specifically, it would use the existing pipeline at the source of Chavao, which is accessed through one of the tracks that start in the Teide National Park and pass through the area of forest crown in the municipality of Guia de Isora.
“This would provide water in a strategic location in a large wooded area,” said the Mayor, Pedro Martin. “Also, the location would facilitate the performance of air power in the event of a fire in wooded areas of the municipalities of Adeje, Vilaflor, Santiago del Teide, Guia de Isora, and within the National Park.”
