The municipal government of coastal city Bahia de Banderas in Mexico's Nayarit state will launch a tender shortly to build a new wastewater treatment plant.
The tender has been approved by the town council and must now be published in the state's official gazette, according to a release by the municipal government.
The project will cost just over 500mn pesos (US$40.5mn), of which 40% will be provided by national development bank Banobras.
The plant will have capacity to treat 900l/s, BNamericas reported previously.
Once the new plant is completed, Bahia de Banderas will treat 95% of its wastewater, according to the release.
Nayarit state, located in central western Mexico, currently treats around 60% of its wastewater. Authorities aim to reach 90% coverage by 2011.
