Panama's state-owned water and sanitation utility Idaan has kicked off construction of the Chorro Blanco potable water plant in Chiriquí province.
Construction of the plant is scheduled to take 440 days and will cost more than US$9mn, the utility said in a release.
The plant will provide 18.9Ml/d to residents of Boquerón and Alanje, which are currently supplied by wells.
The direct filtration plant will use water from the Chorro Blanco aquifer, where a water intake and pipeline to the site of the new plant have already been built.
