In the cantos of La Fortuna and San Ramón in Alajuela Province, two new drinking water storage tanks were built, announced by the Public Water and Sewer Institute Institute (AyA).

According to the institute, the overall cost of these projects was more than $1.7 million, funded by the Rural Development Institute's budget.  

The first massive 2,000 cubic meter tank, located in San Carlos, will supply water to around 13,000 people in the towns of El Tanque, La Perla, San Jorge, Bonanza, Ulima, Los Angeles, Santa Cecilia, San Josecito and San Isidro.

The second giant 600 cubic meter tank located in San Ramón will supply water to around 5,700 people in the towns of San Rafael, el Invu and San Isidro.

The water improvement project will ensure drinking water for the next 20 years, authorities said.

This is one of more projects that AyA has developed in rural regions to enhance access to drinking water. Recently, in the Katira District of Guatuso Canton, Alajuela Province, a new drinking water storage tank was built.

Costa Rica faced a drinking water crisis in February due to hydrocarbon contamination.
