Brazil's Mato Grosso state capital Cuiabá will take a vote by mid-April on whether to provide some 30mn reais (US$18.1mn) for city water utility Sanecap.
The utility aims to achieve universal potable water supply in the city by securing investments for neighborhoods that currently lack the service, according to a Sanecap release.
The project will cover 31 neighborhoods; 17 in the east district and 14 in the north. Work will also involve installing around 6,750 water meters.
The initiative is being developed by city council president Júlio Pinheiro, Sanecap CFO Frederico Campos and company president Antônio Carlos Ventura Ribeiro.
With a total population of some 551,000, Cuiabá will be one of the host cities for the 2014 World Cup.
