Argentina's Mendoza government has launched expansion works on the Benegas potable water treatment plant, budgeted at 55.8mn pesos (US$13.8mn).

The project aims to expand the plant's capacity to 900l/s from 250l/s to guarantee potable water supply to the greater Mendoza area for up to 20 years.

Construction firm Danilo de Pellegrini will carry out the work, which is expected to wrap up in two years, though it could be completed as early as 2012, according to province governor Celso Jaque.
