Other work will include replacing the area's potable water distribution network, building a sanitary landfill and installing rainwater drainage, according to a release.

Conagua will also work with the local water utility to improve administrative efficiency and improve the physical condition of the distribution network. Improvement of the distribution pipes will reduce water leakage and facilitate effective metering of water consumption.
