Tamarindo group sets date to discuss improving water

Tamarindo residents plan to meet later this month to discuss ways in which the water in the community’s bay can be improved. The goal is to recapture a blue flag that is awarded to environmentally savvy locations.

Tamarindo Recycles, the local organization that it trying to keep the town clean, said that a blue flag will help the Pacific beach community attract more tourists.

The town still is reeling as a result of the public relations nightmare three years ago with a government study found coliform bacteria in amounts from 3.3 to 329 times the permitted quantity for swimming. The study was done by the Instituto Costarricense de Acueductos y Alcantarillados, the water company. That news went around the world.

The meeting will be Oct. 27 in the Hotel Tamarindo Diria, said an e-mail announcement.
