Conagua carrying out US$4mn maintenance to Cutzamala system

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Mexico's national water authority Conagua will carry out maintenance work on line II of the federal district's Cutzamala potable water system from June 23-25.

The authority is spending 50mn pesos (US$4.24mn) on the work, which involves replacing a pipeline and placing 14 seals to reduce losses.

The federal district and Mexico state (Edomex) governments planned to increase local water supply before and after the work, to allow Mexico City water utility SACM and Edomex utility CAEM to secure an adequate water supply during the cut.
