Screen_Shot_2013-11-14_at_8.32.09_PMSince the month of March, the two thousand residents of the Village of Sarteneja in Corozal have been without potable water. That makes it 8 months that the pipes across the village have been dry and residents have had to depend on manmade wells to obtain water, to drink, bathe, wash and carry out other daily routines. The problem arose when the reverse osmosis system began experiencing filter problems. Since the village had no funds to fix the system, the Social Investment Fund had to step in. But in order to get water back into the pipes SIF had to purchase an entire new system which recently arrived into the country. According to Secretary of the Sarteneja Village Council, Darnell Cruz the new system should be completely installed in the next few days.

“Estamos agradeciéndole a SIF que ellos están poniendo de su parte no ha mostrado que realmente quiere trabajar para el beneficio de la aldea, nos prometieron un nuevo RO Plant, Reverse Osmosis Plant, y hoy en día es un hecho esa planta ya está aquí en el wáter station, lo que está atrasando un poquito es lo de el contractor, él tiene que acabar con las líneas de tubería y ciertas modificaciones que necesitan para esta nueva planta creo que va hacer una de la mejores plantas de aquí de la región de Corozal Southeast no.”

“Se sabe porque se tardó tanto tiempo para poder recibir este equipo que ustedes necesitaban?”


Darnell Cruz- Secretary Sarteneja Village Council


“Al principio supimos que habían algunos problemas con el la compañía que los estaba metiendo hubo unos problemas por ejemplo que cuando ya se iba a meter una nueva planta de los Estado Unidos mandaron un simple de agua de aquí de Sarteneja y el agua era demasiada salada para el tipo de planta que iban a mandar y se tuvo que hacer nuevas modificaciones a la planta para que pueda resistir aquí del agua de Sarteneja.”


For residents who have been without potable water, we are sure this comes as good news.
