Water treatment plants impacted by rains


Three water treatment plants in Chiriquí that provide service to the communities of Puerto Armuelles, Santa Marta, Santo Domingo, La Estrella Diyala and San Felix are not operating due to heavy rains in the region.

More than 50,000 people are without water due to the closures.

Water official Puy Youbert explained that heavy rains have caused turbidity in the San Felix and San Bartolo rivers, which have caused the plans to close.

The official pointed out that intake valves can't be cleaned until the levels of the rivers subside, due to the danger posed to workers.

Tanker trucks have already been dispatched to distribute water to those affected.
