  2. Hi Megan, I just saw your article. First -there are sewage treatments in Belize see
    Second the main purpose on the peninsula ( and most important) would have been to do a treatment and waste water facility, that was the main reason and argument for nationalizing the water boards. (and it still is as all the septics via leach fields that are working more or less efficient, disperse the untreated effluent into the sea (not just on the peninsula but also the growing communities on the mainland). Yes, the water demand is outgrowing the supply line. However Maya Beach and North-wards has a separate water supply. The current initiative of BWS is in my opinion not an improvement but doubling up an existing supply system and without adding a sewage line at the same time- a mayor waste of money, resources and probably causing more damage to current infrastructure hence not a solution to the problem.
