According to Postal, Through the transfer of a plot of land by an owner, and in a joint work with the Association of Forest Producers of Serra do Caldeirão, the City Council of Loulé created a new water point next to the Miradouro do Caldeirão (Sítio do Feitoso), in the parish of Ameixial, informed the municipality.
This structure, located in a retention basin of 6 hectares, with a size of flooded area of 1750m2 and an average height of 5 meters, reinforces the support for air and land means, falling within the Integrated Rural Fire Management System.
The construction of this water point and its access path was made with local natural materials. The work contemplated the creation of crossing zones to safeguard the crossing of combat vehicles, reads the note.
The Municipality of Loulé wants to pursue "a concerted strategy in favour of the defence of the forest and that also involves the creation of structures that allow to make the territory more resilient and prepared to respond to situations such as forest fires".
