The president of the Authentic Independent Union (UIA), Luis de Jesús, warned today that, as they had anticipated, the fiscal plan certified by the Fiscal Control Board (JCF) includes an increase in the water rate that entered in force on July 1, in the midst of the crisis caused by rationing due to the low supply in the reservoirs.
De Jesús had anticipated that with the beginning of summer a new rate would come for the water served by the Aqueduct Authority and Sewers (AAA).
"The Plan certified by the Board on June 29, indicates that the increases will continue from 2.5% to 4.5% on July 1 of each year until 2022," said the union now in A tweet.
The organization assured that "on multiple occasions we have told the AAA and JCF that savings are in contracts, as always goes deaf."
The rise for AAA subscribers begins in 2.5 percent, highlighted the union.
While, just the On June 2, the AAA began a planned outage plan for AAA subscribers, who receive service from the Sergio Cuevas filter plant, which is supplied by the Carraízo reservoir.
The president of the AAA, Doriel Pagán Crespo, revealed this past week that the 24-hour rationing plan will impact some 140,000 customers.
