Arecibo – The Arecibo area director of the Aqueducts and Sewers Authority (AAA), Samuel Rosario Vega, reported this Thursday that the Quebrada filter plant in Camuy continues to be out of operation and the Lares Espino filter plant operates at low capacity.
“AAA personnel continue to work on repairing the failed pump at the Quebrada filter plant to stabilize service recovery. On the other hand, the Lares Espino filter plant operates at a lower capacity due to high turbidity due to the rains and problems with the regulator located in the Brisas tank, ”the official said in written statements.
