Veeduría ciudadana en Medellín: En riesgo 50 tanques de suministro de agua potable

Uno de los tanques de suministro de agua potable en Medellín.

Estos tanques fueron por mucho tiempo custodiados por los trabajadores de EPM; pero para entrar en la moda, fueron remplazados por tecnología de control remoto, otra forma de EPM para dejar sin empleo a muchos trabajadores

Tres dirigentes sindicales y populares de la capital antioqueña, invocando el derecho ciudadano a la veeduría, en vista de las deficiencias investigativas de los organismos de control, denunciaron que al menos  50 tanques de suministro de agua potable en Medellín, la mayoría de ellos situados en barrios populares, amenazan con derrumbarse, al no tener un adecuado mantenimiento.

Quienes firman una carta pública denunciando el hecho son, el dirigente cívico y exconcejal de Medellín, Gonzalo Álvarez Henao y los dirigentes sindicales Doralba Hernández Durango y Jesús María López Velásquez.

“No es nuestra intensión crear pánico en la ciudadanía con la denuncia que vamos a presentar a manera de alerta temprana, sino que estamos en la obligación moral de dar a conocer los hallazgos que hemos descubierto, en el ejercicio de la juiciosa auditoria que le estamos haciendo a Empresas Públicas de Medellín, para llenar el vacío dejado por los organismos de control que se encuentran en plena connivencia con los corruptos, responsables de todas las calamidades que estamos viviendo”, dicen los firmantes del documento.

La comunidad expuesta

“El hallazgo que hemos encontrado en el cuidado y guardia de cerca de 50 tanques de almacenamiento de agua potable en la ciudad, consiste en que tienen una vigilancia flotante, dividida en cuatro turnos responsables de hacerle custodia a cada uno de los depósitos del líquido preciado y dador de vida. Lo que hemos podido comprobar es que entre el recorrido de un tanque de almacenamiento a otro, pueden pasar de 30 a 45 minutos, como mínimo. Lapso en el cual una persona mal intencionada, puede atentar contra las instalaciones, dejando a toda una comunidad expuesta a sufrir riesgos en su salud, pues se han dado casos de envenenamiento de las aguas.

“Nos preguntamos: ¿si 50 tanques hoy en Medellín no tienen un cuidado estricto y responsable, qué pasará con los más de 130 que existen en el Área Metropolitana? Estos tanques fueron por mucho tiempo custodiados por los trabajadores de EPM; pero para entrar en la moda, fueron remplazados por la tecnología del control remoto, que es otra forma que se ha inventado EPM para dejar sin empleo a muchos trabajadores.

“Esto ha conducido a que cerca de 50 tanques de agua no tengan una vigilancia permanente y estricta, lo que nos pone en gravísimo peligro a todos los usuarios si tenemos en la cuenta los recientes acontecimientos de envenenamientos con cianuro, conocidos a nivel nacional. Adicionalmente, a cualquier animal muerto que pueda perjudicar la depuración y potabilización de líquidos en sus principales plantas de tratamiento. No se piense que somos alarmistas, sino que con ocasión de la auditoría que adelantamos a la administración central y a EPM en particular, hemos llegado a la lamentable conclusión de que Medellín está siendo gobernada por unos irresponsables, como lo son, Federico Gutiérrez Zuluaga, alcalde, y Jorge Londoño de la Cuesta, Gerente General de EPM.

Ocultando Hidroituango

“Estos dos malabaristas y embaucadores le han ocultado a los ciudadanos lo que ha pasado o puede pasar con las personas de la rivera del Río Cauca y con las finanzas de Medellín, si este rio presenta un crecimiento anormal o se da un fuerte temblor de tierra en la represa Hidroituango, con las comprobadas fallas geológicas existentes. Sin perjuicio de mencionar las improvisaciones irresponsables en el manejo de las obras, en ese proyecto.

“El Gerente General de las Empresas Públicas de Medellín, buscando que los ciudadanos no pongan los ojos en Hidroituango y se olviden del cadáver de la Casa de Máquinas, nos está anunciando unas las alianzas estratégicas con unos jugadores de talla mundial para el desarrollo de proyectos de energía renovable no convencional. Esto sonaría llamativo si todas las cosas en el interior de nuestra casa matriz estuvieran bien, pero de todos es conocida la peligrosa crisis por la que está pasando la entidad, en manos de quien sabe mucho de caballos, pero muy poco del funcionamiento de la administración pública.

“En vez de estar pensando en proyectos internacionales, debería dedicarse a velar por la protección de las instalaciones de la empresa, y sobre todo, por la seguridad de los usuarios que demandan los servicios de agua y energía, en especial del líquido que nos da la vida. Indefectiblemente, tenemos que advertir que de cualquier suceso en contra de los tanques desprotegidos en este momento, los responsables directos serán los altos funcionarios de EPM, más concisamente su incapaz e incompetente Gerente General.

    I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and may come back in the foreseeable
    future. I want to encourage continue your great posts,
    have a nice day!

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately
    this, like you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I believe that you just could do with some %
    to power the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  3. Choosing the right household inspector can be a
    daunting task, primarily if you have hardly ever employed just one just
    before. When you are finished with this article you ought to know what queries to check with when interviewing possible inspectors.

    Because all accredited inspectors are demanded to adhere to the same requirements, a lot of people today
    consider all residence inspectors are equal. Almost nothing could be more from the reality.
    If two inspectors ended up to examine the same home, the inspection reports and results could be fairly distinctive.
    Basically said, some inspectors attempt more difficult,
    are more skilled, and are much more complete than other folks.
    For case in point, some inspectors analyze the roof
    by strolling on it, climb up into the attic and into crawl
    spaces under the house although many others don’t. Which is why
    you must show up at your inspection, to make positive the inspector is performing their career.
    Listed here are some other factors you should take into account when picking out the proper household inspector:

    Home Inspectors Licensing- Confirm the inspector is properly
    accredited. Most states have to have residence inspectors to be certified, check with your state’s actual estate
    board to discover out.

    Home Inspector Experience- It may well shock you to discover that anyone can come to be
    a certified household inspector, and in extremely very little time.
    Though working experience in the construction sector is pretty useful, it is not demanded.
    This may well improve in the long run, but as of now, a man or woman just has to go to the required hrs at an accepted house inspection school and
    go the point out property inspection check and they are viewed as a specialist residence inspector, despite the fact that they have by no means
    inspected a solitary house in their life.
    The inspector you employ the service of may well be executing
    their 1st inspection at any time.

    Specialist Affiliations- Most dwelling inspectors be a part of
    a qualified firm to get advantage of the positive aspects and
    sharpen their competencies considering that these companies also have to have continuing
    education and learning hours for membership. Inspectors can also master from each other at conferences and conventions.
    Texas Legislation requires residence inspectors to full sixteen hrs of permitted
    ongoing instruction for each 12 months. The most popular of these associations are ASHI, NAHI, NACHI and TAREI.

    Insurance policy- Texas not too long ago adopted a new law demanding
    property inspectors to carry a minimum amount of $100,000 of specialist legal responsibility insurance policies.
    This is essential at license renewal, so at this time, some Texas home inspectors
    may not carry it nevertheless.

    Request to see a sample of the inspector’s report –
    This ought to give you an concept of how thorough the inspections are and if the inspector consists of photos of flaws.
    Most inspectors use computer system produced studies and some put up them on their web
    page for you to assessment, or he or she can e-mail you a duplicate.

    Should really I Decide on an Inspector Referred by a
    Realtor? – That truly depends on how significantly have
    confidence in you position in your agent. Some brokers want you to use an inspector who does a quick inspection and writes in essence
    absolutely nothing in the studies so the transaction goes by means of speedy and simple.

    Far more professional agents want you to have the best inspection attainable, soon after all it can be their standing on the
    line when they make referrals. If you are unsure if you really should allow the agent select the household inspector
    for you or not, then seek out out your possess.

    Never Decide on the Cheapest Inspector – You should feel me when I make that statement.
    I get calls from opportunity clients each day.
    Several moments value is the first concern they question about.
    I don’t think it truly is since men and women are cheap,
    I assume it’s for the reason that they never know what else to check with.
    Even though I recognize that no one desires to pay
    back far more than they have to, you do get what
    you pay back for. The most affordable inspectors are ordinarily new, inexperienced, or kinds carrying out inspections as a sideline.
    I know of a single buyer who was decided to employ the service
    of the most inexpensive inspector she could uncover.
    Soon after the sale she identified her insurance plan firm would
    not insure her roof because the shingles had been mounted in excess of outdated
    wooden shingles, which ended up evidently obvious from the attic.
    She wound up paying for a full new roof (about $six,000), all for the reason that she tried out
    to conserve a mere $25.00 in inspection expenses. The typical expense of a house inspection in the United states is
    $380.00 (United states of america Right now…

    Listed here is a list of queries I’ve place jointly for you which you can use when interviewing probable household inspectors:

    one. How long have you experienced your license and been inspecting residences?

    two. Do you carry Mistakes and Omissions (E & O) insurance?

    three. On average, how extended does it take you to execute a typical property inspection? By means of inspectors will
    consider about 3 hours on a normal dwelling.

    four. How prolonged does it get for me to get my
    inspection report back from you in digital format?
    5. Are you a member of a experienced association?
    six. Do you carry out re-inspections on fixed things? If so, for how significantly?

    seven. Do you mind if I stick to alongside though you inspect?
    Your inspector is effective for you and should really let you
    to find out as significantly about the home as doable.

    eight. What is your inspection fee? If the inspection rate seems as well very low,
    you might not get a thorough inspection.
    nine. Do you have any references I can communicate to?
