Culebra MJ...you definetely sound like someone who would spray paint "MAL HECHO" in public property...
"Septic code violations"? You're joking? Three years ago Culebra did not even have a waste water treatment plant! Would you sign up for a snorkling trip on the canal by the bridge on a rainy day? Hmmmmm...don't think so! Do you think that all houses, restaurants and shops around the bay have been magically connected to the recently installed sewage line? C'mon! Let's not talk about septic code violations in Culebra. But if interested, here's the facts about waste water treatment in Costa Bonita:
1) Each cluster has a waste water treatment plant that provides primary and secondary wastewater treatment.
2) Each plant consists of a a series of septic tanks that use pumps and bio-filters to separate solids.
3) An aerobic treatment system and indigeneous water-borne microorganisms progresively convert dissolved biological matter into solid.
4) Biological solids are neutralized and disposed and treated water is disinfected chemically prior to being re-used for irrigation 6 inches under the surface of the grounds of the complex.
5) The company that installed the wate water treatment plants is under contract and visits the complex twice a month to assure that all treatment plants are working properly and in compliance with all codes and regulations.
That being said, is it possible that at some point something failed? Probably. Is it possible that at some point one of the 42 treatment plants had a leak or some mechanical malfunction? Most likely. But what I can really ASSURE you is that the system is being monitored and in compliance with all codes and regulations. The Home Owner Association is paying a lot of money for this water treatment system. Furthermore, I would be very surprised if any other property in Culebra had a similar water treatment and water recycling system as efficient and well maintained as Costa Bonita. Perhaps if Culebra had a Green Awards Ceremony I would proudly nominate Costa Bonita's water treatment system for the big prize. Maybe the solar power generation system in the school would be a tough contender, but other than that, I like my odds against any other project.
I guess not many here are used to reading good things about Costa Bonita...well, now there is somebody from the inside posting FACTS...not bitter and biased opinions. Remember that this is no longer a hotel "representing the interests of the rich and powerful". Costa Bonita now happens to be the HOME and WORKPLACE of many hard working people. Please think about that the next time you feel inspired to trash Costa Bonita in this message board.
