Department of Environment issues update on remediation of the New River

Posted: Friday, September 20, 2019. 1:14 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Since the installation of the first aerator at Maracas Bar and Grill on September 9, 2019, the Department of the Environment (DOE) has been monitoring water quality and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) levels of the New River, twice daily (morning & afternoon).

The DOE has noted some improvements in water quality and a decrease in H2S levels.

On Wednesday, September 18, 2019, personnel from the Belize Natural Energy Limited and the DOE conducted routine maintenance and testing of the H2S sensor situated beside La Inmaculada R.C. School and Maracas Bar and Grill.

 As part of the testing, the alarm was turned on to check for functionality. At no time did the H2S alarm go off because of high levels of H2S in the area.

The DOE is aware that the management of La Inmaculada R.C. School and the Ministry of Education have initiated Phase 1 of their internal plans for the school, in response to malodour that affected the area after rainfall.

Residents of Orange Walk Town are reminded that, after a period of moderate to heavy rains, there is the likelihood of an increase of malodour from the New River. The DOE advises all residents to be cautious when traversing near the river.
