2. Local Water problems!

Here are some notes from Monday’s  somewhat sudden meeting with congressional candidate Eduardo Yayo on local water problems.  It was a constructive meeting!

There were about 25 in attendance, including a large group from Palo Blanco. If you’re interested in getting involved in creating solutions, which seemed to be the direction the group is heading in, message Robin Neal with your email address.

Los Barriles Water Meeting re problems north of town, run by Eduardo Yayo for congress

Yayo works in the government in La Paz, has some relevant experience, but no direct responsibility. He does see a need for connecting the expat communities with government and wants to be a bridge.

According to a study he referred to, BCS is expected to be the first or second state to run out of water in 15-20 years unless something is done. It was not clear what he meant by “run out of water.”

At Magdalena Bay they didn’t have water or light. Yayo was involved with a project in which they installed desalination with solar in the town, providing both water and light for about 400 people.

Rick Johnson, local resident, who has lots of experience in constructing sewer and water projects: A sewer system would save 60% of water. We need a whole new water system going north from town. He can see 20 leaks along any given line up there and those are the ones that rise to the surface. We need an 8” line, plastic, that can expand under pressure and doesn’t leak, along with all the subsidiary lines.

Jeanne Harkleroad recommends making a plan, as they did for the new athletic field. That project took 4 years,  coordinating between the mayors of LB and La Paz. Almost complete.

Mike (Connor?) has sat on sewer boards and water boards. Said that it took over ten years just to build the LB fountain, but seemed hopeful about getting to work on this project, as were others.

Someone suggested a surtax just to cover the water improvement.

La Paz is supposed to give 50% of tax back to Los B. That has been the intention, anyway. Right now they’re updating the computers. They need to have a system connected to track all the money. Can’t accept money from us that isn’t accounted for through that system.

Steve Burgin said we’d probably have to set up a Mexican nonprofit. Otherwise the money will disappear in La Paz.

Brittany: We wait 1 hour now for an ambulance. Inexcusable. Many have died on the way to the hospital.

There is a great team in La Paz, (name Calafia?) but they’re funded by foreign money and there’s leadership, that’s what we need here. If MX can’t do it, we’ll do it ourselves.

Yayo says a lot of equipment that has been donated like ambulances, etc, are sitting neglected because there’s no organization, no leadership.

Marta from Palo Blanco commented: It’s all getting worse. Water is worse, garbage collection is worse. If you (Yayo) want to connect with this community, these problems have to be solved.

Robin Neal observed that we have a lot of skills in our community. We need workgroups to focus on garbage, water, etc. She suggested we start organizing and planning. That got a lot of agreement so an email list was circulated. There was substantial Interest in getting to work.

What about you? Want water? Services? We may have to make this happen ourselves. If you’re interested in working on a water project, garbage collection project, an ambulance project, a sewer project, or anything else you think needs doing, please send your email address to Robin Agajanian-Neal at yobaby426@yahoo.com
