Pandeportes says pool problems are fixed

Temas:

The Panamanian Institute of Sports (Pandeportes) announced yesterday that leaks in the Eileen Coparropa Pool were repaired Monday and Tuesday.

The pool was then re-filled and was being used yesterday.

The agency came under scrutiny when water from the pool was used for the culecos that sprayed crowds during carnival. This was done despite the fact that the country is in a severe drought.

On Saturday, the agency said it was done because the pool had to be emptied anyway for repairs and repainting, which was also repeated in a statement issued Wednesday. Thursday, the agency said the repairs had been completed in two days.

Pandeportes facilities manager Juan Carlos Pringle could not answer why the statement issued Wednesday did not mention that the repairs had been completed earlier in the week, as the agency maintained on Thursday.

Many have criticized the agency for scheduling the repairs in the dry season, when water is scarce, rather than during the rainy season.
