Corsan planning Cerro Grande do Sul sewerage system

Thursday, December 1, 2011

Southern Brazil's Rio Grande do Sul state water utility Corsan has started preparing an executive project to build a sewerage system for the town of Cerro Grande do Sul, a company spokesperson told BNamericas.

"The project will be presented to the local government in a few months' time," the spokesperson said.

The plan falls under the utility's new 25-year concession contract with Cerro Grande do Sul, signed at the end of November. The company's previous contract, signed in 1988, did not include sewerage services.
