‘MOPT is killing us!’ Escazú reader reports

New pipes to bring water to Escazú are being installed along the old San José to Santa Ana road. This has been in progress for weeks. I live in San Rafael de Escazú about 800 meters west of PACO. The pipes are in and the dirt has been filled in, but the road has not been repaved.

Consequently, enormous clouds of gray, gritty cement-like dust are generated every time a bus, truck or car drives by. And when they speed, which is often, it is like the fallout from an atom bomb. My house is filthy daily and I am fearful for my health.
