The executive director of the Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (AAA), José A. Rivera Ortiz, reported that the Monserrate well located in Vega Alta is out of operation due to an electrical failure
The official explained that AAA personnel will replace the electrical switch today, Monday to restore service to the major. “If there are no complications, the service will be restored in the afternoon,” he said.
The sectors that experience low pressure and interruption in the drinking water service of the municipality of Vega Alta are: Pueblo Nuevo and Sabana Hoyos. While in the municipality of Vega Baja the Monserrate sector is affected.
Given the possibility of turbidity when the service is restored, it is recommended to boil the water intended for human consumption for three minutes.
