The project will be executed within 24 months and will benefit the districts of Punta Hermosa, Punta Negra, San Bartolo and Santa María del Mar in Lima.
Lima will have a desalination plant that will allow sea water to be transformed into potable water for the benefit of 100,000 inhabitants of Punta Hermosa, Punta Negra, San Bartolo and Santa María del Mar.
According to information from El Peruano, this was reported by Sedapal, detailing that 310 million Soles will be invested in the modern infrastructure that is being built for the first time in the history of Lima.
“The work will be executed within a period of 24 months and its production capacity will be of 400 liters per second, which will improve the quality of life of the population with scarce resources”, El Peruano said today.
In addition, Sedapal informed that for the distribution of the drinking water and the collection of wastewater, 260 kilometers of pipes will be installed to cover the four districts that will benefit from this project.
“The objective of the project is to reach 100% coverage with a 24-hour continuity of drinking water supply, so the work will improve the quality of the population”, El Peruano said, adding that these four districts have insufficient and intermittent water service at the present time.
To the company responsible for the project it consists of a challenge of high technological development of converting sea water into potable water through desalination methods.
