New wastewater treatment plant for Mahahual kicked off

Mahahual, Q.R. — The construction of a new wastewater treatment plant for Mahahual has been kicked off by Governor Carlos Joaquín. The governor, along with other dignitaries, were on site for the start of the 40 million peso project.

The project will see a sanitary drainage network installed in the community of Mahahual. Once complete, the governor says the subdivision of Arrecifes will undergo an image change with residents then being able to have proper infrastructure services.

Governor Joaquin said that throughout his administration, almost 100 million peso in hydraulic investments between drinking water and sanitary drainage has been invested in Mahahual.

Gerardo Mora Vallejo, director of the Potable Water and Sewerage Commission (CAPA) announced that once complete, the town will be 100 percent covered in water and sewerage infrastructure.

The project consists of the laying of a sanitary drainage system for the connection of 272 sanitary discharges and 40 manholes along with a fully outfitted pumping station.

The project is expected to be complete in mid-2021.
