Arecibo – The Arecibo area director of the Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (AAA), Samuel Rosario Vega, reported that the Lares Espino filter plant was out of operation yesterday and this morning due to internal electrical problems and high turbidity.
“Preventive maintenance personnel repaired the failure that affected the production of the Lares Espino filter plant. However, while the recovery process is being completed, sectors of Lares and San Sebastián experience low pressure and interruption of the drinking water service, ”said the official.
The sectors of the municipality of Lares that experience low pressure and interruption of the drinking water service are: Espino, Miraflores, Río Prieto, La Torre, Los Quemaos, Planel, Sebruquillo, Urb. Altamira, Urb. Villa Borinquen, Urb. Palmas Del Sol , Urb. Villa Seral, Urb. Brisas, Urb. Jardines, Calle Albizu Campos and Buenos Aires.
Likewise, the Perchas, Mirabales and parts of Juncal sectors of the municipality of San Sebastián.
Given the possibility of turbidity when the service is restored, it is recommended to boil the water intended for human consumption for three minutes.
