“They prefer to sacrifice quality of life”: residents in Old San Juan denounce the location of an industrial generator in a nearby school

Residents of Sol Street, in the Old San Juanthis Friday rejected the location of a generator in the historic Abraham Lincoln school – installed just seven feet from the first grade classroom – and classified it as a risk to the healthy coexistence of the community due to gas emissions and excessive noise. that it would produce when turned on.

“Our claim is the location of the power plant. We are not opposed to the school having a plant. We simply understand that there is a better place to install the plant, where it is beneficial for everyone in the community.”he said Haydee Batista Contrerasa resident of Sol Street who lives right in front of where the generator was installed on Thursday.

The equipment, located behind a statue of Abraham Lincoln, is part of a project by the Education deparment to reinforce the shelter schools with the installation of industrial generators, at a cost of $35 million in federal funds.

Not receiving responses from the authorities, the neighbors went to the Court of San Juanlast week, to request that the installation be stopped, but Judge Antonio Martinez Piovanetti dismissed the case because “it was not mature”since the plant had not yet been placed in the site. Two days later, it was placed in the elementary school.
