Costa Rica News – For the tenth year in a row, Guanacaste is waiting to see aqueducts completed in Santa Cruz, Sardinal and Bagaces.
The Sardinal one will be ready by the end of the year, it seems, while the others will be further delayed.
The lack of water in the province has been problematic for some time. The problems in building the aqueducts have had to do with problems with the bidding for the purchase of tanks.
Additional problems came from protests from neighbors who feared their water would go to other towns and leave them without in the future.
After meetings and dialogues an agreement was met. One of the plants depends on an expropriation process still to be defined by a judge.
Having better access to water will allow for tourism projects to develop in the region once again and have a positive effect on employment. There are a total of 16 projects in the region that, if ever completed, will improve conditions for 280,000 people.
