Mexican national water authority Conagua is investing some 1.2bn pesos (US$100mn) in improvements to Mexico City's Cutzamala potable water distribution system, according to Antonio Gutiérrez, director of Conagua's Mexico valley water basin authority OCAVM.
Works include construction of a second high-pressure line from pumping station 5 to oscillation tower 5, a sludge processing plant and replacement of filters in the Los Berros potable water plant, Conagua said in a release.
OCAVM has completed maintenance work on line 1 of the system, which involved replacing two 7.32m pipes.
The authority is planning seven maintenance projects to replace tubing on the system this year, which is expected to cost some 50mn pesos in total.
