We are happy to inform you that the new well drilling has begun.

It has taken us some time to get the area prepared so the driller can get his equipment on site and set up. 

The well driller hopes to be completed in six to eight weeks.  The well may take a little longer if he runs into hard ground.

We have paid him one third of his original quote. We will need to pay him an additional third when he gets about halfway and the rest when the well is complete.

That being said, those of you who have opted not to start paying until the well was started need to start paying.

We will need all accounts to be paid in full by no later than March 31, 2021

Those who have not paid will have their water restricted.

Thank you all for being patient.

This message is to invite 5 to 10 delegates to participate at the 2021 General Assembly. There will be two points to be addressed, ONE is the presentation and voting for the 2021 budget (there will be no increase in the monthly cuota and will be the 3rd year without and increase) and TWO the election of the open positions for the Board of Directors.


In order to have the Assembly in a legal way, the quorum needs to be met at the 2nd call of the assembly at 2.15pm on March 13th, 2021. BUT if we don't have delegates to carry this out, then we will not have a legal meeting.  So, its very important to have delegates to participate at the GA. If you are up to date in your cuota payments you can participate as Delegate. Please let me know if you can serve your community for this time no later than March the 3rd, so other residents can have time to deliver their votes to you and be prepared to come to the assembly in person.

WELL UPDATE - February, 2021

See video of the work being done. The current depth is 110 mts. The goal is to hit 200 mts, to have enough room to work with the aquifere levels and the possible need to get the pump lower for better water supply. The driller found water at 85 mts depth but as I mentioned we need to go deeper to secure fracc water availability. So far, we can't have an exact flow that the new well will provide, but it is estimated to be around 20 lts per second which is very good and will also help reduce electricity costs for the pump. The drilling might take another 3 to 4 weeks.


To all of those residents that have not completed the special assessment (8300 pesos per water connection) we invite you to come to the office and take care of this. The dead line to do it is March 31,2021. If payment is not received your water supply will be reduced and a fine of 2500 pesos will be charged to your fees.


Office hours are Monday to Friday 8am to 2 pm and 3 to 5 pm. You can always call to make sure the office is open. As you know my job goes some times out of the office to take care of fracc bussiness.


Any noise after 11pm is in violation of the Chapala noise ordinance.  Please respect your neighbors and keep noise at a respectable level. Otherwise, you may be reported.


Please ensure your dogs are “on leash” when they are not on your property.

And, don’t forget to clean up after your dog.


Garbage collection (including garden trash) is picked up three times a week – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Please keep in mind that pickup cannot be done when the truck is down for maintenance. In those cases garbage is usually picked up the next day.
