Chiriquí water treatment plants impacted by rain

Sandra Alicia Rivera,Especial para La Prensa | ALGARROBOS, Chiriquí 08 may 2017 - 11:40h


Due to damage to its pumping system, the Chiriquí water treatment plant has been out of operations since Sunday.

In addition, heavy rains caused a great amount of sedimentation in the water intake system of the treatment plant in Algarrobos, which is also out of operation. 

The regional director of the water authority Idaan, Youbert De Puy, said that teams were sent to do repairs, so the plants are expected to be operational soon. 

De Puy explained that strong currents in the David River have complicated the repairs to the Algarrobos plant, which draws its water from that river. Workers will have to wait for the currents to ease before clearing the intake pipes.
