Agespisa, through its company for the development of the São Francisco and Parnaíba valleys (Codevasf), has signed an agreement with the national integration ministry to carry out the works, the utility said in a release.

Once work is complete, 90,000 residents will benefit from 100% wastewater collection and treatment.
