    Standing water... is it not supposed to be good for controlling mosquitoes?

    I have read about the many steps Aruba has been doing to keep the mosquito population at bay to help control zika and other mosquito born illnesses. I was wondering why places like 297 are able to have standing water as part of their restaurant. I am just curious about this?

    maybe someone should ask them about it?

    i have never been to the restaurant. what do they have that is standing water?

    if the water is treated or filtered or aerated, it is not standing water and is allowed.
    if there are fish or other aquatic life in it, i think that too is not standing water.

    The standing water that is mostly at issue with mosiquito control would be that which you'd find in a discarded tire, the recesses of a swamp or wet area and drainage ditches.

    From what I saw, its just a large decorative mini pool. Not only did the standing water question come to mind but it is in front by the bar and perhaps a few patrons might end up in the water by the end of the evening.

    i am betting that the water is treated with chlorine or some other disinfecting method to prevent algae etc..

    i would wager that maybe a few patrons too a dip . would be fun to watch
