Government wants to privatize the water company CORAAPLATA
The government wants to privatize the water company CORAAPLATA. The company faces many difficulties, one of which is funding. Citizens and businesses have to pay their monthly bill for the use of tap water, but many citizens apparently don’t want to, or can not afford to pay the bill. This has brought the water company to financial problems. There are also complaints about the incompetent management and lack of maintenance of the installations and pipelines. The central government thinks privatization will resolve the problems of unpaid bills and bad management. However, opponents argue that poor people, and there are many, will be shut off because they can not afford the monthly expenses of water.
