Governor tours 136 million in Mahahual public projects

Mahahual, Q.R. — More than 136 million has been spent on improving infrastructure for residents of Mahahual. Governor Carlos Joaquin was in the Costa Maya town this week reviewing the public work projects being done.

Joaquin said that the 136 million peso spent included concrete floors (firm floors) for residents who were living with dirt floors inside their homes. Communities with more than 100 residents are part of the program to ensure dirt floors are replaced with concrete to keep out moisture and improve health.

A total of 5,370 firm floors have been built so far for residents in communities of Othón P. Blanco.

Funds were also spent on the sanitary drainage network, sump and wastewater pressure emitter and completion of the construction of the sewage collection and pumping sump.

Joaquín said that in Mahahual the state government has invested more than 104 million peso in hydraulic projects in improvements to drinking water and sanitary drainage, which is added to the more than one billion pesos that have been allocated in Othón P. Blanco in terms of drinking water and drainage.

For the electromechanical equipment and automation of the drinking water tank, more than 42 million peso was invested in the Arrecifes subdivision. The project consisted of the rehabilitation of the 400 cubic meter tank and covers communities such as Xcalak among others.

He said the money was also spent on the rehabilitation of the Cafetal-Mahahual road as well as improvements in local parks and pubic lighting.

During his Tuesday tour, Governor Carlos Joaquín was accompanied by the general director of the Drinking Water and Sewerage Commission (CAPA) Jaime Mollinedo Gómez, and the director of the National Water Commission (Conagua) Erika Ramírez Méndez.
