By The Star Staff
Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) Executive President Doriel Pagán Crespo announced on Wednesday that the agency will provide a five-day period for water service subscribers in the Las Mareas Camino Los Indios neighborhood in Salinas to present evidence of valid compliance with water service registration requirements or face disconnection of service.
“According to our investigation, six subscribers did not present evidence to support that they are [eligible for] having the drinking water service provided by the Authority,” Pagán Crespo said in a written statement.
She also noted that five unused connections were eliminated for which PRASA has no evidence of their installation.
Pagán Crespo also said that “at this time, PRASA personnel are on site performing the disconnections.”
“It is important to remind citizens that all clients must comply with the requirements imposed by the Authority, in addition to any other applicable law or regulation,” she said.
Also on Wednesday, Milton Pérez Oquendo, director of the PRASA Caguas operational division, announced that PRASA personnel will carry out cleaning work at the Espino Grande dam next Tuesday, April 19, starting at 8 a.m.
“The work consists of cleaning the wells or raw water storage tanks, as well as the grills that retain the accumulation of sediments and materials that could obstruct the entrance of water that will be treated,” the official said.
