Beaches in Puerto Vallarta still being monitored for contamination

After the rupture, last week, of the wastewater collector in Puerto Vallarta, the beaches adjoining the El Salado estuary continue to be under daily surveillance of the bacteriological quality of the water by the Jalisco Ministry of Health (SSJ), through the Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks of the State (Coprisjal).

The areas that remain under monitoring are Las Gemelas, Palmares, Conchas Chinas, Los Muertos, Rosita, Camarones, Osiris, Hoyo 18, Marriot, Westin, and Dársena beaches.

The SSJ noted that, during the last three days, the beaches have yielded results within the parameters established by the Federal Commission for the Protection Against Sanitary Risks ( Cofepris ), of less than 200 enterococci per 100 milliliters of water, which is considered a satisfactory level, however, they still recommend avoiding contact with water at these points.

According to the authority, wastewater stopped being dumped into the estuary because the collector was repaired, however, the SSJ will continue to perform the daily sampling until it confirms that the water quality levels are within the norm and for recreational use.

It was also reported that the actions of epidemiological surveillance are maintained and that to date there have been no cases or outbreaks of gastrointestinal or dermatological diseases, derived from the runoff of wastewater that occurred last week in some roads of the town.

According to information issued by the Secretariat of Integrated Water Management (Segia), the damaged collector has already been repaired.
