Residents decry deterioration of sewers

HOLGUIN, Cuba - January 26 (Liannis Meriño Aguilera, Jóvenes sin Censura) - Backed-up and overflowing sewage systems are driving the residents of Banes to distraction.

Residents say the more-than-50-year-old sewage pipes have received little if any maintenance in all those years and they routinely leak, spilling their contents on the streets.

There is only one truck destined to clean septic tanks, and to boot it is often out of commission due to breakdowns. The employees of the community service agency that would service the sewage system have little motivation to work due to low salaries, residents complain.

Banes is in Holguín municipality, in eastern Cuba.
