If we all donated up to $50-$100, we would be able to fix our broken system now. We will need to develop funding money for on-going maintenance and will continue to ASK the government for help, but if we want to stop waste water from bubbling up in the streets when the “gringo season” starts, we need to do the work now.
Please donate what you can now. You can donate to Tierralegre “Playa Limpia Initiative” or I have set up a PayPal “Your Clean beach” account, which makes donating easy. All funds from either place lead to the goal of having a clean beach and town.

I have done some research and the average cost for sewer in the USA is between $40-$80 USD/ month. We get what we “don’t” pay for and I for one am tired of the diseases in town and polution of the clean ocean, only because our system needs repair and maintenance. I am the treasurer of the Sewer Committee and I believe in an open book policy. I will inform anyone of our donations and our expenses on the message board or in person.
We may be waiting for a time for the Engineers Without Borders, as they are not responding quickly to our requests for action, so far. They also need to raise funds to come here.
In the meantime we are working toward a meeting with those in Tamarindo who are saying they want to help us. More will be revealed as we take those steps involved for a proper, formal meeting with Tamarindo and the Ejido president, our Mayor, our Sewer Committee, interested citizens in LaManzanilla and those from the new administration of LaHuerta who are interested in a functioning sewer system and the resulting boost in tourism.
Please help us get the gantry made, so we can install the repaired pump, while extracting and inspecting the old pump that has been disused for many years. Yes, each time we repair something, we find the next thing to do. And that is the way things get done.
