  1. This is a short summary of the "Water Works" project which has now commenced in downtown Boquete. January 2015 Government seeking Proposals for New Water & Sewage Systems for Boquete The National Council for Sustainable Development ( CONADES) issued an invitation to tender for the design and construction of aqueducts, treatment plants, and wastewater handling in Boquete, Chiriqui. In accordance with the statement of objectives published in PanamaCompra, it is a tender to which has been placed a reference price of $25 million. Those who are interested in participating in this tender should submit their proposals the next February 10, so they will have 32 days to prepare documents. "The drinking water supply system of the district of Boquete is carried out through three rural aqueducts, which are: Los Ladrillos, Valle Escondido, and Alto Quiel. This system covers the districts of Los Naranjos, Alto Boquete and Bajo Boquete. The rest of the water supply systems in this territory are administered by JAAR's. There are six in Jaramillo, two in Los Naranjos, two in Palmira and one in Caldera", explains the document. "It is of particular concern that currently there is not a crude water treatment system by which cannot be predicted or control the factors with the potential for contamination, which may cause health problems in the population. The distribution is made by gravity through tubing ,in the majority PVC, with a regular chlorination. There are also lines of asbestos cement, a material that is now banned for domestic use. In some areas of Boquete there are irregularities in the supply, a situation that is mainly due to the fact that there is no systematized and structured distribution system, lack of control and maintenance on the network. In view of this it is necessary to evaluate the driving lines by the low efficiency and effectiveness that are distributed," adds the statement of objectives. This evening it is expected that the president of the Republic himself, Juan Carlos Varela, during a visit to the Feria de Flores in Boquete, will announce the news to the inhabitants of this community. The work shall be ready in 730 days (two years) once the work formally begins. Below is a table with the scope of the project, according to the statement of objections published. June 2015 The project was awarded to Constructora Urbana s.a. or CUSA and surveying began. September 2015 SANTA LUCIA APPENDED TO THE MODERN AQUEDUCT THAT IS TO BE BUILT IN Boquete Last Saturday after an important meeting held with the residents of the Santa Lucia Neighborhood, Ing. Carlos Santamaria CONADES, Elisha Miranda (Aproccosa) and Ing. Municipal Ernist Gonzalez carried out an important inspection to the actual sources for the current Irrigation aqueduct in El Salto. The tour was carried out in sectors of El Salto and Volcancito in order to have a better reference of the project that will be appended to the Municipal of the aqueduct of Boquete in which they are looking for the best options to resolve the lack of water in the neighborhood. In the opinion of the Ing. Manuel Soreano, who has already endorsed project and has asked for a period of 60 days to conduct a design study that will then be discussed with the inhabitants of the Santa Lucia neighborhood. Volcancito and El Salto distribution were always part of the project and the area of Santa Lucia was appended. December 2015 The main contractor CUSA set up headquarters near the entrance to Valle Escondido. June 2016 Saw-cutting and asphalt degradation for trenching begins.
  2. I rent a house on the side street off Volcancito Road just past the entrance to Santa Lucia - a dead end lane lane that heads back down the hill towards Bajo Boquete. My water supply has been iffy for several days, but now I have no water flow & my reserve tank is empty - first time in three years of living at this location. I also understand that Bajo Boquete is having water pressure problems. Anyone have a clue as to what is happening?
  3. Anyone know why there has been no water for days in the Brisas Boquetenas location?
  4. Looking for water lilies or other types of water plants for a new garden feature I am building.
  5. Today a notice on News Boquete warned about drinking untreated water due to fecal contamination and incidents of amoeba and giardia infections. This week our water came out of our taps blackish-brown. Then it went off entirely. The outage is into its second day. This is the second long outage this month. The last one was 3 days. This is not Santa Lucia or Jaramillo where water outages are common. This is a neighborhood in Volcancito that has always had a dependable water supply. This is a new problem. The proposed water treatment system will not benefit Alto Boquete (which includes Volcancito). Who can we talk to about the water? Brown fecal water is not acceptable. Days without water is also not acceptable. Yes, I do have storage tanks, but some of my neighbors don't. We also had two days this month with 10 hour power outages. Come to Boquete and live like a barnyard animal.
  6. Results of water tests of unfiltered water in Alto Boquete for the last few months. I had a UV filtering system installed in March and my water is clean now. Instead of filtering drinking water only, I am glad to have all of my household water on the filter. Restaurants in Boquete are not required to provide proof that the water they serve is potable.
