The House of the Municipality of San Sebastián de La Gomera today approved with the votes for municipal socialist group and the non elected officials of the Canary Coalition and People's Party (in terms of the declaration of emergency), construction priority of the bio-ecological treatment plant which will be located in the area of the shortcut, in the Barranco de la Villa. The accidental mayor, Carmen Darias, has noted that "this action is determined by the neighborhood shortcut is the core population of the gorge of the village that most people have and because of the problems that the sanitation system has always been traditional in this part of town so that the Consistory has considered the highest priority to resolve the matter, especially now that winter is approaching and rain may cause new problems that we want to avoid at all costs. "
"It says the mayor noted that this action the City will invest an amount exceeding € 600,000, ie over 100 million old pesetas in a priority action for this team government. This wastewater treatment plant, like the other three that are planned will be carried out with funds from the municipal sale of the land of the Lomada Tecina. "
"We must remember that Darias said Carmen's neighbors Barranco de la Villa have experienced first-hand through an explanation of the project by the technical editor and a visit to Tenerife, this network of alternative biological treatment plant that will serve each of the cores of the Barranco de la Villa and La Laja which will carry out the purification of wastewater from a localized and efficient in each neighborhood. This type of treatment also has an added value as the resulting water reuse for irrigation. "
"The process is not overly complicated," says Darias-as it is to use natural processes to eliminate odors and solid waste so that the sewage accumulating in a waterproof shell and insulated called bio-digesters where anaerobic fermentation (without oxygen) eliminates odors. Water and sludge in turn passed to a pond of green filter, which would mean that plants such as lettuce Nile are responsible for absorbing nutrients pollutants, resulting in a waste water without odor or harmful elements living beings and can be reused in agriculture. "
"Another advantage Darias says - we have found in this system is that the shells as bio-digesters ponds green filter is compatible with its location on the outskirts of urban andalusia no emit odors and be completely checked in as aseptic a visit to Masca, the reeds and San Juan de la Rambla. "
"This means also concludes the mayor - that these facilities can be placed on existing infrastructure or future construction such as public squares and gardens because of its friendly neighbors, while the water results can be used both for agriculture and for the irrigation of the palm trees in those areas that are no longer engaged in farming.
