Culebra has significant problems of water scarcity and poor wastewater treatment. In 1984-1985, a formal Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared for improved wastewater treatment facilities on the Island. In addition to addressing the predominant water pollution and public health issues, the challenge in preparing these wastewater treatment plans was also to attempt to meet multiple objectives, including: supplement the Island's extremely limited water supply through reuse of treated wastewater; preserve unique environmentally sensitive areas; protect threatened species and habitat, including sea turtle nesting areas and coral reefs; and balance potential development growth.
