Water alliance pays visit


CiF rural affairs chief Bartomeu Escandell and environment chief Daisee Aguilera welcomed Aliança per l'Aigua coordinator Juan Calvo for a visit of the island's irrigation pond today. Also present at the event were Joan Ferrer, chair of the local Comunitat de Regants and representatives of the Tragsa company. Councillor Aguilera underlined the importance of infrastructure able to “find ways to use waste water in local fields and keep it from being dumped in Formentera's surrounding waters”. The goal, says Aguilera, is “to close the water cycle”.
