Water main breaks in San Pedro
Friday, February 17th, 2012
Residents in downtown San Pedro woke this morning (Friday, February 17, 2012) to find that there was no running water. The San Pedro Sun has received information that indicates that San Pedro needs to be aware of serious issues regarding water supply. Dee Dillon, P.E. – General Manager of Consolidated Water Belize Limited sent out a notice to the San Pedro Business Association with regards to concerns about providing water to the community. “Since 2008, at least, the Reverse Osmosis plant has run full time during high season and just barely met demands. If we have a high season with as little as 5%-10% increase in demand over any of the last 4 years, we will in all likely not be able to meet that demand.”
Concerned that this could be the issue, The San Pedro Sun made a few calls to find out what the issue was. Investigations have revealed that the problem is a broken water main.
Lisa McFadzean, Media Personnel at BWS sent out the following release:
