Potable water in Orange Walk safe from pollutants in the New River

David Pascacio

There is heightened concern if the New River fails to improve. Those living along the river bank have been enduring for weeks with no relief in sight. While the smell and other chemicals emanating from the water have hundreds worried, there is also the fear that the potable water will become affected. Today, in an interview with the Operations Manager of the Belize Water Services, David Pascacio, he put that fear to rest.

“Fortunately for us in Orange Walk, our source s well water which is not supplied by the New River. So, that is very, very fortunate for us and the consumers in Orange Walk.”

“So is the system in Orange Walk fully insulated from that level of pollution?”

 

David Pascacio

“Solely dependent on wells.”
