Japama commits to address collapsed drains in Ahome

Los Mochis, Sinaloa.- It is a reality that there are problems of collapsed drainage not only in the city of Los Mochis but also in the rural area of ​​the municipality of Ahome; however, due to the high demand for reports, it has been impossible to attend to all of them satisfactorily.

This was stated by Hernán Medina, general manager of the Japama, who explained that the delay in repairs is also due to the fact that at this time at least five vactor trucks are under repair.


“There are many clogs in the drains due to the amount of sediment, that greatly affects the operation of the system, which in the end doubles or triples the cost and work for us. Unfortunately, five vactor trucks left for the workshop due to the large amount of sediment that we found, we hope that the following week they will be available and that we will be able to comply with the situations in the rural area ”, he indicated.

It is worth mentioning that recently collapsed drains were denounced in Debate in communities and fishing grounds such as El Colorado and Compuertas, places where they assure that they have had this problem for many months.

Even the residents of these settlements affirm that the conflict has been denounced repeatedly to Japama, but they have not received a favorable response.

The municipal official added that in the same way there are some reports for the urban area, in which there is also a schedule for the repair work.


“The only part where we have reports is in the extension of October 12, which is not municipalized, it is not delivered to the municipality and Japama only enters to perform services or care where there is a network that was delivered to the municipality. We have other areas but we mainly have in that neighborhood, but, I repeat, it does not have a network recognized by us, “he added.

Finally, the official asked citizens to contact Japama to make their report so that it can be scheduled for their attention.

“Tell them to mark the board to make the request for it to be attended,” he mentioned.
