Aguakan removing beach pipeline drains from central Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Playa del Carmen mayor Lili Campos says work to remove drains along the beach area have begun. In a statement, the mayor verified the start of the work by Aguakan who are removing the intake pipelines from the beach to 12, 14 and 16 Streets.

She says the removal of the drains will contribute to the care of the environment and image of the coastal area and benefit of locals and visitors.

“Work has begun to remove the pipelines that have been in the coastal area for almost 20 years. We want our beaches clean, which is why they will be connected to another well. Work will be done for the rehabilitation project, which will last two months,” she told the press.

The mayor explained that due to the erosion of the beaches in this area, the pipelines are exposed, which can cause damage to the coast, which is why she asked the company to remove them.

Aguakan General Director, Paul Rangel, explained that they will relocate the intake ducts and build in-line wells and the flow, which currently passes to the next avenue, will be diverted,” he said.
