In preparation for the future development of Fideicomiso's Las Salinas Fortuna salt flats located on La Parguera nature reserve, our team conducted an analysis of the history and environment of the location and its infrastructures. The current facilities of Salinas Fortuna are dilapidated and without the supply of public utilities, for this reason the system is powered by a hand cranked diesel motor producing operational noise. Through interviews with employees and a study of a related location, our group developed a set of recommendations for potential construction, noise reduction, and educational opportunities. With the goal of environmental protection and historical preservation we tailored our ideas for the most beneficial long term outcome.
