Water Shortages on Ambergris Caye

As more and more people move to Ambergris Caye there is going to be over the next few years a huge problem with sewage and water. The supply of water is running at around 90% capacity and there seems little enthusiasm from the water companies to spend the millions of dollars needed on the infrastructure to increase production.

Without a doubt San Pedrito, San Matteo areas where people have actually built below the high tide level, and therefore now have a problem with sewage during the flooding months. It should be up to the town planners and developers to stop allowing swamps to be developed without making sure that they are properly filled before building commences.
