OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABy Chrisbert Garcia: A government press release issued this morning, announced its expansion and upgrading project on the Aguacate village Rudimentary Water System with assistance from the Belize Social Investment Fund (BSIF), which will be contributing $12,400 for trenching and will be implementing this project.

Located in the Toledo District, Aguacate is a remote Mayan community with more than 400 residents that will now benefit from the construction of a ferro concrete pump house, installation of a submersible pump, a chlorinator unit and four polyethylene tanks, as well as a security fence at a total cost of $337,636.19 which was obtained through a loan from the Caribbean Development Bank.

This upgrade will ensure that residents of Aguacate have a continuous supply of potable water for daily needs all year round, despite the season. A ground breaking ceremony for the project is currently being held in the village that began at 1:00 p.m.
