Arenal Report

March 19, 2010

The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) is now allowing some of the fortunately  placed residents around 23-mile-longLakeArenal to access the underused water through the 50-meter, mostly forested barrier that surrounds the lake. Those whose property abuts the barrier can apply for access through the 50 meters to the water and there install a floating dock and a shelter of some kind, perhaps a rancho or bodega. Recently, several people with property at the 50-meter fence have started the application process. ICE charges nothing but requires that the application be done by a lawyer. Usually, there’s not a boat to be seen on the lake except near the dam. That may change if lakeside residents are allowed their own places to keep boats.

 

The Arenal Computer Club will next meet April 14 at 1 p.m. at the Hotel La Carreta in Tilarán. Club honcho Ed Rheames usually presents a list of the fascinating Web sites he continues to discover and also helps with computer frustrations and advice. To get a list of his latest selections, e-mail him at popgoesweasel@gmail.com.
