“The decision was made to close the beach until further notice, there is a sewage spill due to a power failure in the Agua Negras Treatment Plant, therefore the beach is very contaminated right now,” he said.

As a precautionary measure, the authorities mentioned that they will close their beaches to the general public, a closure that could be extended for an approximate period of two weeks so that leisure or sports activities will not be possible.

Brown said that right now you can not walk, run, much less swim or surf, and invited the population to take care of themselves.

According to the mayor, this happened due to the wear and tear of the equipment at the Black Water Treatment Plant, which is already old and does not have a power plant.
