The high concentration of sediment in the middle basin of the Estivaná River is the main cause of problems at the Llano de Piedras water treatment plant, in Los Santos. 

The situation is expected to get worse due to continued rains in the area. 

The manager of the water and sewer agency Idaan in Los Santos, Abilio Barrios, said that the rain needs to stop before the issues atthe plant can be resolved. 

"There is enough sediment in the river that has exceeded the plant's capacity to treat it," the official said. Idaan is distributing water through tankers.
