Screen_Shot_2017-06-13_at_8.30.22_PMIf you have recently made your way through downtown Orange Walk you might have noticed that the historic water thank that has been erect beside the BAHA office on Arthur Street for many years is currently being brought down and Orange Walkenos are wondering why? While we have been trying to find out the reasons for the tank being removed from yesterday, we were unable to do so until today when we visited the site and spoke to persons in charge of the project.

 

We were told that the tank is being removed as part of the Belize Water Service’s hurricane preparedness plan. The tank has not been in use for many years and poses a threat to the surrounding area in time of a hurricane since it can fall over being that it does not contain any water.


The project is expected to run from June 8th to 30th after which similar water tanks in other districts will also be brought down.
