The executive director of the Northern Region of the Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (AAA), José A. Rivera Ortiz, announced that today the distribution tank of the Hatillo-Camuy filter plant will be washed.
“The cleaning, which will be carried out with specialized divers from the agency, is part of the short-term work plan to stabilize production at the Hatillo-Camuy filter plant. During the next few weeks, the filter medium will be renewed, as part of the long-term work plan ”, explained the official.
Rivera Ortiz added that to minimize service intermittent time while works are being completed, personnel will make operational adjustments.
The sectors that could experience low pressure and intermittency in the drinking water service of the Camuy municipality are: Los Méndez, Cibao, Camuy Arriba, Zanja Plaz, Matojillo, Cuatro Calles, Abra Onda, Palomar and Yeguada. While the sectors of the municipality of Hatillo that could be affected are: Capaez, Las Piedras, Naranjito, La Paloma and El Cementerio.
Given the possibility of turbidity when the service is restored, it is recommended to boil the water intended for human consumption for three minutes.
