Ambergris Caye Braces For Extreme Water Shortages During Peak Easter Break

Water shortages before and during the Easter break is nothing new to island residents, but it is something that is recurring more often and island residents are pretty much fed up with the water utility company.

Ambergris Today contacted The Belize Water Services Limited San Pedro Branch and was told that today, Tuesday, March 27, 2018, the water pressure through the island will be at its lowest and that for the rest of the month (Easter Week) the pressure will be low because of the high demand of water during the Easter Break and because they have to be doing maintenance work on the pumping station.

Inplub, we feel your pain..... We had prepared our ice machine for the outage at 11p, instead we had to use our emergency water during dinner service..... However, our Doctor reminded me last week by saying, 'but don't we live in Paradise'..... Of course she is right.... Most days are better than worse...... Wishing us both a beautiful day in Paradise..... smile
