Residents in the Burns Avenue area of San Ignacio are complaining of contaminated water in their taps for the past week.
Construction is currently taking place on a street in the neighborhood, which is believed to have led to pollution of the water system.
Mr. Kent Pandy, a local, says that they have been dealing with this situation since Friday.
