Update 25 September: Guía de Isora Ayuntamiento has commissioned a study from La Laguna University to investigate the leak. The hotel appears to be denying that the evidence in the video is connected with Abama, and there are suggestions that it might take legal action against its authors.
Original post 21 September: It’s the pipe, it seems, that carries the salt from the hotel’s desalination plant … it broke three years ago and hasn’t been fixed. The “volcano of salt” that’s being pumped out is therefore not being carried out far enough, and is killing the seagrass area near the coast. This is the area of Tenerife’s great hope … and although I’m not the world’s greatest seagrass fan, it seems that the damage won’t stop there, and will have repercussions for the general environment of the sea in the area.
The above video shows it happening. HERE‘s a link to an article in Aquí Sur which has the same video with wording in Spanish to describe what is being seen. The commentator on the video says: the Hotel Abama knows but it would cost them money to repair it; the Ayuntamiento de Guía de Isora knows but says nothing; diving clubs know but fear reprisals; and the Enviroment Department knows, but they don’t want problems”. As the commentator ends: now some more know too.
