CAPA expands wastewater network in growing part of Chetumal

Chetumal, Q.R. — A project worth 9.5 million peso has been started for the city of Chetumal. The CAPA project will see the expansion of the city’s wastewater system to serve another 2,100 residents.

In order to guarantee adequate sanitary drainage service in the growth area of the city of Chetumal and meet the population’s demand for basic services, the Potable Water and Sewerage Commission (CAPA) is expanding the wastewater emitter of the Pacto Obrero area.

Governor Mara Lezama has instructed that public services generate well-being for families, but also recover the shine of the state capital as part of the New Agreement for the Well-being and Development of Quintana Roo.

As part of this Agreement, the State Government, through the CAPA, will invest 9.5 million peso from Own Income of the Parastatal Sector (IPP) 2022, destined to improve the sanitary drainage system of the growth area of Chetumal.

The project includes the expansion of the emitter coming from the Pacto Obrero cárcamo so that it directly enters the Caribe cárcamo. The entire project will cover the area from Manuel Evia Cámara Avenue with Luis Manuel Sevilla up to the intersection of Santa Lucía and Polyuc Streets.

It consists of the supply and installation of 2,250 linear meters of pipes, trenches, fills, construction of intake and expulsion valve boxes.

The work was necessary considering that the area of influence is classified as the growth trend zone of Chetumal. CAPA seeks to optimize pumping between the sanitary drainage system wells to guarantee the correct evacuation of the wastewater that is generated and eliminate incidents of overflows and bad odors in the area.

Said actions benefit the block of neighborhoods and subdivisions such as Pacto Obrero, Américas, Caribe, Flamingos and Centenario.
