Some times there, some times h...

I had the same thought. And as far as the "old" pipes in town, I've never heard that either.

I thought I heard that many or some house and businesses are not on the sewage line system. How do these places get rid of sewage. Does it go into the water on the west side of the island?

The water is fine in AC as long as you get your water from the pipeline. As far as pipeline concerns go, well there were some breaks in the lines due to Keith. The concern is then that there can be sepage into the lines. WASA(who own and operate the distribution system)/Belize Water(produce the RO Water) increased the chlorine level of the water to insure the safety of the water until all breaks have been found and repaired. The water may not taste that great and may smell slightly of chlorine, but it is safe and should, if it hasn't already, return to normal once WASA repairs the pipelines.

As for sewage, WASA operates a waste water treatment plant but I am not sure of the capacity.

Well, if Belize Water doesn't know where the sewage from the non-sewage service locations dump their sewage, does anyone want to say? Its not like its a bad thing, it is after all a small island and things have functioned for many years in a good fashion. Please educate us whoever may know.

Anyone not on the sewer line has a septic system, consisting of a compartmented septic tank and leach lines. These systems work very well in this island environment with its porous sandy soil.
The WASA sewer system has a modern over-sized treatment plant and several large membrane-lined settling ponds located on the western side, south of town about 2 miles. Some of the biggest, healthiest alligators around here live in those ponds!

Can't argue with the alligator statement...they have some whoppers out there. But as for the pollution, my geographical dislexia aside: check the report through Green Reef. It should be public record, if it hasn't been 'lost' yet...
