The government pointed out that progress is being made in cleaning up after the spill caused by the rupture of a collector that affected the El Salado Estuary.

The Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks of the State (Coprisjal) reported that it maintains the monitoring in beaches of Puerto Vallarta after the sewage spill in El Salado, after a pipe bursted. The areas that remain under monitoring are Las Gemelas, Palmares, Conchas Chinas, Los Muertos, Rosita, Camarones, Osiris, Hoyo 18, Marriot, Westin and Dársena beaches.

Through a press release, SEAPAL reported that mitigation and sanitation works continue at the estuary El Salado in Puerto Vallarta, in order to stop the runoff in the streets of the colonias Mojoneras and Parque Las Palmas.

Once the collector repair was completed, SEAPAL Vallarta, with the support of the municipal government as well as state, federal and environmental authorities, such as the municipality’s Ecology Technical Council, intensified mitigation and sanitation actions inside and outside the Protected Natural Area.

Polymers and peroxide have been placed in the regulating vessel and channels of Las Mojoneras and Parque Las Palmas, with the goal of increasing oxygen levels.

For this same purpose, SEAPAL has provided two boats with motor pumps that act as aerators for the water of the estuary and four specialized teams that do this work

On the other hand, the samplings carried out by the Department of Health Jalisco, have given results within the norm in the last five days, at the Marina Vallarta beach.
