Residents of Guaicanamar, just outside Jaruco and south of the city of Havana, say they are concerned about the proliferation of overflowing septic tanks in the area, since the last such situation two years ago was followed by an outbreak of hepatitis.

Resident Neobel Castellanos said the current problem dates back two
months, and sanitary authorities have not been able to address it.

The local delegate of the Popular Power has only stated that the
problem has been brought to the attention of higher authorities.

Communist Party second secretary Alexis Lopez said the matter “is
priority number one of the the local Party committee,” explaining that there
is only one high-pressure truck available and that it has been occupied
in Havana. Lopez said the situation would be addressed by next Monday.

According to Jorge Luis Aspiolea, of the National Institute of
Hydraulic Resources, in Havana alone there are 136,000 septic tanks that demand resources for their cleaning.
