Canal Gestion, the Madrid-based company in charge of Lanzarote’s water supply, has warned that they are in a “difficult situation to offer an adequate service.”
The company announced that the Lanzarote III water production unit has been taken out of service after 32 years of use. As a result, the capacity for water supply has been limited to 20,000 cubic metres a day. Lack of storage tanks and leaks that account for 56% of the island’s water being lost have contributed to the precarious situation.
As a result, in in anticipation of high demand during the summer, Canal Gestion has requested that clients and the general public “remain committed to responsible and sustainable consumption, in order to save water.”
