Thursday, March 10, 2011

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.
