Major improvements at Puerto pumping station
The Playa Jardín Residual Water Pump Station in Puerto de la Cruz has undergone a substantial renovation of its facilities in order to improve the functioning of this infrastructure.
The concessionary com-pany of the water supply service of the municipality, Aqualia, has invested a total of 19,177 euros in these actions.
Mayor Lope Afonso recently visited the station together with Emilio Fernández, director of the delegation of Aqualia in the Canary Islands, and Braulio Domínguez, head of the Puerto de la Cruz service.
Sr. Afonso was able to see first-hand the investment made by the concessionaire com-pany and was pleased with the improvement produced in one of the infrastructures “ne-cessary for the proper fun-ctioning of the service”. He stressed the efforts Aqualia is making to improve municipal infrastructure and announced that “gradual progress will continue happening throughout the year with the aim of offering the best quality service to our residents.”
The actions carried out by Aqualia began in March and continued until the first weeks of April. The reforms have focused on the renovation of the roof and the improvement of deodo-risation. As for the roof, the existing one was demolished, which was already deteriorated, debris was removed and the roof was replaced with prefabricated honeycomb plates. Regarding deodorisation, the system has been improved, consisting of channeling the air to a coil that injects ozone, generated in a machine inside the facility, to disinfect it and minimise the unpleasant odour of hydrogen sulfide, thus improving the quality of the air of the envi-ronment.
The work, of a marked environmental character, has had a total cost of 19,177.32 euros, which Aqualia has financed in charge of the annual maintenance service.
