Water Produced In Chitre and La Villa Purification Plant Not Fit For Consumption

HealthcareThe Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (IDAAN for its acronym in Spanish) announces to its customers and users in the provinces of Herrera and Los Santos, that the water produced in our treatment plants Chitre and La Villa is UNFIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION due to pollution in the Villa River as a result of the presence in the liquid of a chemical that affects water quality.

IDAAN, in conjunction with the Ministry of Health (MINSA for its acronym in Spanish) in both provinces, took the decision to declare water as unfit for consumption after they received reports on June 30, of the tests conducted by the Public Ministry about the presence of a herbicide dissolved in water.

The affected areas are: Chitre, Monagrillo, La Arena, La Villa de Los Santos, Santa Ana, Llano Largo, El Bongo, Los Olivos, Guararé, La Enea, El Jobo, Las Tablas, El Cocal and El Carate. (Source: IDAAN Press Release)
