They have been working for more than 20 hours straight, to restore drinking water service in the affected areas of the West of Panama City.
IDAAN, through their Twitter account, reported their work crews from the metropolitan region are helping with the repairs on this important water main.
Currently the IDAAN is providing water directly to those who go to the El Trapichito water treatment plant. (Estrella)
Editor's Comment: The events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated that anyone living in Panama who depends on the IDAAN for drinking water should always have a backup supply on hand. The water service can go out at any time, with no warning whatsoever. I recommend getting a few of those large 5 gallon water jugs and just have them available, for when you need them. you can always just use them up, then refill them using tap water to keep it fresh. You can expect the water service to go out at least once or twice a year, no matter where you live.
