I don't happen to have any spray paint, unfortunately, but I'm a MAL HECHO fan, yep.
If you read what I wrote, I specifically made it clear re: septic code violations being anywhere else BUT here, as you are correct in saying there is a sad lack of such a thing. So all your reference to it being something HERE...is moot. I'm quite aware of the water quality due to the present system, as well as the lack of hook ups to the system installed (although some homes ARE hooked up...gravity, apparently, still works).
You made a number of points about what is being done and they are good actions. Leaks, problems, etc. you mention as probabilities. So my question would be, with all that monitoring going on, why is there the same problem since the day CB opened, now going on eight years later? That is not bitterness speaking, it is just an honest question about indisputable facts. Truthfully, my only compassionate feeling about CB is the people who bought into it, not knowing what they were in for (despite the fact that CB is about as un-Culebra like a place as there could be, I can understand the desire to have a place here, regardless, when taking prices and the once hoped for amenities into consideration).
I'm glad CB can provide a home for many hardworking people. I can also separate those people from the model CB represents on Culebra, which I don't have to trash...it trashed itself from the first...with the help of the Tourism Board of Puerto Rico.
Insider and outsider views usually differ, and this is my view, as you have yours as an owner. Don't take it so personally, I regularly trash a few other places (and people, in certain situations) I think are desirous of taking advantage of Culebra thoughtlessly for their own gain without considering the long range consequences of impact. On this message board, on my blog, in the streets. So it goes. Various viewpoints give people choices in thought. That's what it's all about.
