Boca Chica beach is suitable for tourists

The executive director of the National Institute of Drinking Water and Sewage (Inapa), Wellington Arnaud, assured yesterday that the Boca Chica beach is fit for bathing and enjoyed by the population.

He specified that the place complies with the international standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Law 64-00 on Environment and Natural Resources.

“Last Friday 22nd we went to the Boca Chica beach to take water samples for bacteriological analysis. We took 8 samples: 4 superficial and 4 from the bottom; 2 in front of the Hamaca hotel, 2 in front of the Whala hotel, 2 in front of the umbrellas and 2 in Andres. So far, the 8 samples show total coliforms of less than 300 and the regulations for recreational waters for bathers, diving, among others, allow up to 1,000,” said the official.

Arnaud assured that the definitive solution to the sewage of the municipality of Boca Chica will be achieved in the second semester of 2022, by instructions of the President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, with the completion of the sanitary sewerage system. “There is no inconvenience with the use of the Boca Chica beach,” he stressed. Furthermore, he emphasized that the study was carried out in conjunction with the technicians of the Boca Chica Aqueduct and Sewer Corporation (Coraabo).

bull, look in front of banco reserva. raw sewage and has been there for years. check the papers in new york. people are returning with infections. also, you have in your plans to address the sewage problem. well, you would not be addressing it if there was not a problem, then it would be allot more productive to state the fact that boca chica has a sewage problem and have plans to address the problem than to just fight the facts with your argument which i find allot of bull. no way did you get the samples and have them analyzed in one day. now besides the bad water, take a look at the corruption with the national police, the corruption with the judges, lawyers and cops all working together to extort money from locals and tourists. the robberies and the filth are just plain out of control not to mention you need a jeep to get around with the nasty roads. so, it would be allot better to admit to the issues here in boca chica and address them. you sound like a liar and sound stupid.
