They are upset residents of the Laguna del Mar condominium in La Serena, Coquimbo region, who accused that the water source present in the place had turned into a “swamp”.
Neighbors of the Laguna del Mar condominium in La Serena, region of Coquimbo, accuse that the crystalline lagoon present in the enclosure was transformed into a true “swamp”.
In conversation with T13, one of the neighbors said she felt “ripped off”, also specifying that “they sold us a project where there was a beautiful crystalline lagoon (…) Right now we have a swamp in the lagoon”.
For his part, another of the condominium residents stated that “the solution is relatively easy, we all know it, but it is very expensive”, raising the question if it will be the real estate company that built the place that assumes the cost or if that responsibility will fall on them as neighbors.
“295 thousand pesos that one pays for a common expense that is not reflected, that is, here we enter and everything is upside down”, claimed another owner.
Okay As reported, although a company is working to solve the problem that keeps what were once crystalline waters green, the extension of the lagoon -2.4 hectares- would make it difficult for everything to fix within four weeks committed in the first place.
“Seven people were hired, who although they are working all day, I believe that the advance has been 2%, which in a month from now it will be impossible to obtain a crystalline lagoon and the leases for the summer will be affected”, asserted another neighbor.
For her part, the Coquimbo Health Seremi, Paola Salas, indicated that “it was noted that there was a deficit in chlorine, so for that reason a sanitary summary had to be filed with the company, in addition to other conditions that we found were not optimal”.
Regarding the causes of the change in the color of the water, the genesis of this would be in the original well of the project, Therefore, the real estate company Aconcagua carried out a new survey at that point, which was denounced by an NGO, due to the alleged alteration of a nearby wetland, which -for the moment- was ruled out by the General Directorate of Water.< /p>
Through a statement, the firm specified that they regret the inconvenience caused by the situation, noting that “we expect to recover the usual standards of the lagoon within a period of four weeks, based on the use of technology and all the necessary resources and additives, to improve the quality of the water and eliminate the dirt in suspension”.
“It should be noted that the new collection source is a deep well with rights acquired and registered” , close the letter.
