CAPAMA Abandons Repairs in Hornos

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 22 November, 2010

(Acapulco, NA 22 November) In Sebastián Vizcaino Street in the coastal neighborhood of Hornos, near downtown, CAPAMA last week started water line repairs by digging up a 20-foot stretch of pavement. Since then, the project stands idle, giving the “Men Working” sign a touch of irony. Restaurants and homes on the street have been without running water for almost a month. Now the street is obstructed for vehicle traffic. One restaurateur complained, “First they do not provide water, as promised. Then the dig up the street and leave. After several calls to the company they tell us that they have no one available to do the repairs … We don’t know what to do. Maybe we should pay a professional to fix the pipe, one sufficiently serious about it to do the job because we really need the service … At least CAPAMA could come and cover the ditch they so irresponsibly dug up.”
