Merida sees improper use of sewer drainage in the streets, as people discard their garbage in there or divert their own drain pipes to those spaces.,,
MERIDA — On a tour through different streets and avenues of the Historic Center of Merida, it was noted that the street vendors who sell food throw dirty water and food residues into rain grilles, which cause stench there.
In Mérida, there are 80,000 rainwater wells and more than 129,000 grids, but although some 2,000 more are drilled each year, the troubles also increase.
And that is the reason why the streets of the center of the city are flooded with rains and the fetid waters stand undrained. Faced with this situation, Public Municipal Services said that it will prepare heavy fines for people who use the grids and rain wells to drain their sewage, soap, oils and food waste.
Likewise, Alejandro Cetina, head of the Municipal Public Services Drainage Department, indicated that they have discovered that several residents in the north and northwest of the city built pipelines from their homes to the grilles.
The main cases were discovered in the Francisco de Montejo colony. Likewise, he said that they have almost 53 thousand square meters of grids to clean and almost 50 percent of the west side of the rain wells.
