The director of Mexico's national water authority, Conagua, José Luis Luege, has inaugurated the expansion of the Los Berros potable water plant, according to a release.
Some 200mn pesos (US$14.3mn) was invested in the project, which forms part of the rehabilitation of the Cutzamala transfer system that supplies potable water to more than 5mn residents in the Mexico valley.
The Cutzamala system, which includes seven dams, requires significant repair work following 29 years of use. Conagua plans to tender construction of a third pipeline by year-end.
Conagua has invested 54bn pesos over the last five years in the water sustainability program for the Mexico valley.
