Weekly Water Quality Monitoring
Evaluación realizada el jueves, 16 de junio de 2022. Continuamos con bandera verde en la Reserva Estuarina de la Laguna del Condado, aunque hay una zona en la laguna que no pasó los estándares de monitoreo. Hay otras dos zonas con bandera roja en el litoral, por lo que recomendamos evitar estas áreas y estar atentos a cualquier evento de precipitación.
