Carrillo

Residents say concession holders have destroyed Tempisque River and put communities at risk

We hope that this is followed up on in the near future to avoid any damages in the upcoming months. ..

By Edgar Cantón / Voz de Guanacaste

Residents of the community of Los Angeles of Palmira in Carrillo, Guanacaste, reported that concession holders have destroyed the Tempisque River and endangered the community in case of flooding.

The neighbors are upset with the Ministry of Environment for having authorized a concession to extract sand from the Tempisque River, work which was done using a backhoe to descend into the river and remove the sand.

The  Tempisque River , or  Río Tempisque , is 144 km long, located entirely in  Costa Rica  flowing from the Guanacaste Cordillera  near the  Orosí Volcano  and emptying into the  Gulf of Nicoya .

The Tempisque River, or Río Tempisque, is 144 km long, located entirely in Costa Rica flowing from theGuanacaste Cordillera near the Orosí Volcano and emptying into the Gulf of Nicoya.

The head of the environmental office of the Municipality of Carrillo, Henry Duarte, said that at the time he had opposed the concession because it affected the natural defenses of various communities against the overflowing of the river during rainy season.

He said that the National Environmental Technical Secretary (Setena) approved the permit for sand extraction, despite the reasons given by the Municipality of Carrillo. The neighboring communities of Filadelfia, such as La Palmera, are concerned that the heaviest part of rainy season is coming up and they could be affected.

They said the concession holders broke the wall of the river in one of the river’s bends, and it could flood several neighborhoods. They are asking the environmental authorities to void the concession for extraction from the river with machinery. In the area, until recently, the only concession holders were sand artisans who remove the sand with shovels and use oxen to move it to a collection site.

 


UPDATE: Road Construction

As the construction continues, some parts have disappeared... As you can see in the previous post with pictures, this now shows that there have been some steps backwards. 

Why could this be? Miscalculations? Business concerns?

All we know is that there was curb forms in place and now they have been torn out for some particular reason.


Road construction in Playas del Coco

Nobody is really sure what this is going to become of this but the municipality must be up to something.

For a quick description, construction of the roads of the main street in Playas del Coco has included digging a trench about 1.25 meters wide and .75 meters deep form Super Luperon towards the ocean.  After the dig, it has be filled and compressed of white rock and dirt. 

Now in front of Luperon, they are beginning to form curb and drainage. Let's hope that they continue on with this and pave the road afterwards.

Beware of the Jellyfish...

Along the beaches of Playas del Coco and Playa Ocotal, thousands of Jellyfish have been left on shore after the high tide went down. So if you happen to be walking on the beach, you may want to watch where you step if barefoot.
