WATER/SEWER PRIVATIZATION.

Ondeo de Puerto Rico has assumed control, for the next 10 years, of the Autoridad de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AAA), in a new chapter in the history of the private management of the island's water and sewer agency, reports El Nuevo Dia (July 1, 2002). The AAA's 6,000 employees will continue working, but under different management, said Juan Agosto Alicea, the new executive president. In the 1970s, AAA was considered to be a model public corporation., but by the mid-1990s, it was operating with heavy losses, aggravated in part by serious leakages of water.
