Plant is operating in Chilbre at 50% capacity

Energy/Infrastructure

The Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers National (Idaan) reported that the water treatment plant of Chilibre is still working 50% by an electrical fault in a pumping station.

For this reason, from the night of Monday, April 9, potable water will be presented at the low points, while in the media low pressure will be experienced and in the high places for a few hours they will not have the service.

The fault has caused that 5 of the 10 pumps are not working properly, so the maintenance staff of the Idaan, together with specialized technicians, perform the relevant work to normalize the system.

It is important to emphasize that the decrease in pressure in the pumping equipment has caused the water sent to the Tinajitas storage tanks to be returned to the plant.

The Idaan recommends making rational use of drinking water in the low points that have the supply.

The contingency unit will provide water tanks to hospitals and clinics that require it to continue their daily functions.

Have to post. This actually just occurred to me.

Perhaps, being an ex-pat and living here has made me obtuse over the years to something that is very clear.  Panamanians as a WHOLE,  do not speak English very well. (if at all). We have travelled to Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic to name a few. All have in general …
