The Ministry of Health authorized the resumption of service after samples from Big Creek Lagoon on Isla Colón showed no signs of contamination. Serice was suspended last week due to high levels of contaminants.
José Donderis, director of civil defense agency Sinaproc, said that 6,000 residents of both islands were supplied with water during the suspension. The agency sent tanker trucks to communities and also handed out bottled water.
The agency ended its emergency operations at 9 p.m. Sunday.
