MERIDA .- “We have absolutely no water, not even to drink or to take a bath,” said a resident of Colonia Industrial, in the south of the state capital, just a couple of miles from the Mérida International Airport.
The problem persists since December 2018 in a large sector of this area, so on Wednesday February 21st, residents decided to demonstrate on Calle 45 of the aforementioned “colonia” to express their disagreement.
Another resident said that on two occasions, Japay staff have come to Colonia Industrial in the last two months, They excavated and noticed that the pipe is only two inches wide and supplies a vast sector of the colony. Then they said there was no problem and left, leaving things in exactly the same situation.
Some locals say that the shortage may be due to the construction of all type of businesses in the area (incluing banks and stores), and that most of those buildings were not contemplated in the original water network project.
The protesters said that they have already sent several letters to the local authorities, complaining about the problem (in fact they delivered a letter today Thursday Feb. 21, signed by all the affected residents), but nothing has been done yet.
The residents are obviously upset and they are sending a warning that if there is no answer, they will proceed to close the streets of Colonia Industrial, until the authorities solve this problem.
