16/05/2012 Lanzarote (BG) - A blanket of green algae continues to cover the sand and shoreline at El Reducto beach, Arrecife. The problem began in late April and does not appear to be going away. According to the city council, Councillor for the Environment, Rafael Juan Gonzales, went to analyse the problem on Wednesday morning and blamed it on “environmental factors”. Samples of the seaweed were collected for further analysis but as of yet no results have been published. The City Council have assured the public the algae is non toxic.


Last week Councilman Jacobo Lames said that: “the algae is being dragged in with the tide and therefore it cannot be washed away and removed by the water”. He added that a “machine” was cleaning the beach and an operator was also collecting the seaweed with several bags of thrash.


On Wednesday, a neighbouring resident told how the beach is filled with the seaweed, and one cannot access the shore making it very difficult for elderly people and young children. The neighbour claimed: “it is terrible because you cannot even swim” and although he understands it is expensive to remove algae from the sea, he is wondering why it has not yet be removed from the sand as it is dry.
