By Benjamin Flowers: The Government of Belize has advised residents of San Vicente Village, Toledo not to use any water from its local supply until the Ministry of Health and Wellness certifies it fit to do so following possible contamination of the community’s water supply.

According to a government release, villagers alerted the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour, and Local Government of possible and deliberate contamination of the village’s rural water system. Authorities quickly moved to flush the reservoirs and distribution lines.

An investigation was also launched and one suspect has been detained for the “heinous” act, the release indicated. Some community members have also been exhibiting possible symptoms and have been transported to the Punta Gorda Hospital.

Ministry personnel are scheduled to return to the village today to monitor and assess the situation. The Ministry also said it strongly condemns the deliberate contamination of residents’ drinking water, which endangers their lives.
