The Royal Economic Society of Friends of the Country of Tenerife (RSEAPT) continues its cycle "Planet Earth 2019" on Monday, 25 February, from 19:00 hours, with the conference "Groundwater of Tenerife", which will be given by the doctor in Geology, Juan Jesus Coello. Admission is free.

The third presentation in the cycle will deal with the water conditions in Tenerife's wells and galleries. In addition, it will focus on the processes for obtaining this resource and on how to manage it efficiently, taking into account the volcanic structure of the Canary Islands, a territory where the scarcity of this resource prevails and obtaining groundwater is basic. In Tenerife, as many as 1,520 excavations have been registered to obtain underground water, 1,122 in galleries and 398 in wells. In 2015, 41% of these boreholes supplied this resource, providing 84% of the water consumed on the Island. But these figures have decreased over the years, due to the high cost of these excavations and the difficulty of the collection work.
