Panama to Build New Water Treatment Plant

President Ricardo Martinelli stated that a new water treatment plant will be built in the Eastern area of Panama City.

Friday, February 4, 2011

The president's statements come after a water supply crisis occurred in Panama City, as a result of heavy rains last December which affected the Alajuela Lake, the main water supply for the Chilibre water treatment plant.

"We will do another water treatment plant in Panama City near the Bayano River to supply water to the entire Eastern Panama area and not rely solely on Lake Madden (Alajuela) and the Chilibre water treatment plant," said the president.
