More Than 30,000 People In La Chorrera Still Without Water

Infrastructure UpgradesMore than 30,000 people living in the various communities of La Chorrera and Arraiján, in the Western part of the province of Panama, are still without drinking water service after the rupture of a 60" water main last Thursday, 17 April 2014.

The director of the Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers in La Chorrera, Maximino Quintero, said repair work continues, and in the meantime they have contracted the services of additional water tank trucks to supply the affected sectors.  

For its part, the National System of Civil Protection has three mobile water treatment plants they are using to supply drinking water to the community, two in El Trapichito and one in El Chorro de La Chorrera, Idaan reported.  

The IDAAN through their Twitter account reported that in cooperation with the Panama Canal Authority they have conducted several maneuvers to achieve adjustment of the coupler, without positive results.

They said the couplers have to be installed under pressure, and they have so far been unable to join the two lengths of pipe.

At 9:00 am today the authorities from the IDAAN will hold a press conference to provide additional details. (Panama America)
