President San Ginés stated “The intention is that more than 6,200 residents and around 9,000 tourist beds in the area of Montaña Roja will be supplied at the same conditions of quality and price as the other residents and businesses on the island”.
From today the hydraulic infrastructure that supplies water to the residents of the area of Montaña Roja in Yaiza has been seized on behalf of the Consejo Insular de Aguas for the Consorcio del Agua de Lanzarote.
Early this morning the Consejo Insular de Aguas, a body competent to grant concessions, authorisations, certifications and other acts relating to water, accompanied by the Consorcio del Agua de Lanzarote presented the Plan Parcial de Montaña Roja with documentation to seize the desalination plant, sewage treatment plant, two regulatory deposits, eight pumping stations and 50 km of water supply & sanitation network that form part of the hydraulic infrastructure of the Plan Parcial for the south of the island that caters for 6,249 residents and more than twenty hotel and complexes with 9,000 tourist beds.
The execution of this procedure has arisen due to “the situation of absolute irregularity of the desalination plant, that are selling water to third parties without authorisation and the corresponding concession” indicated the Island’s President, Pedro San Ginés, adding that “thus we comply with current legislation, after the requirement to cease this activity effected by the Consejo Insular, and respond to the many complaints from residents of this zone, as well as the Diputado del Común”.
Club Lanzarote SA obtained authorisation from the Consejo Insular de Aguas in 2004 to produce water for personal use only, and not for sale. Years later in 2012, the company read more »

The good start to the season continues as the Rojillos hold out the final 25 minutes with just 10 men in scorching heat to become one of only three teams to remain unbeaten.
Lanzarote began the game superbly as they looked to get off the mark early against the Gran Canarian side.
The opening goal came in the 16th minute. Man of the match Echedey won the ball in midfield and put through on goal his Captain Rosmen, the striker drew the keeper then returned the pass unselfishly to Echedey who had the simple task of stroking the ball into the empty net and send his side 1-0 up.
The Rojillos were looking good value especially with the Colombian striker Mauri creating havoc for the Gran Canarian defence down the left flank. This lad looks exciting and will certainly score and create goals this season. At one point he beat a host of defenders and shot at goal which went into the side netting but really had he kept his composure he could have laid on a sitter to a team mate.
Unión Viera began to find their feet and were having some joy down the left wing. On one occasion a superb cross from the left found midfielder Joel but from eight yards he was unable to keep his strike down as the ball flew over the bar and Lanzarote went into the break with that slight advantage.
The second half began wonderfully for the Rojillos. Only three minutes into the second period and a poor defensive clearance found British boy Brad who on a half volley wonderfully struck the ball into the top left hand corner scoring his first goal for the Rojillos and in doing so doubling his sides lead to 2-0.
A couple of minutes later Rosmen could have killed the game off when he was put through by Echedey but unusually for the skipper he got caught in two minds whether to shoot or pass to Kennedy as he saw his effort go horribly wrong.
