Mid-western Brazil's Goiás state water utility Saneago will call a 102mn-real (US$59.1mn) tender by year-end to expand potable water supply service in the city of Goiânia, a company spokesperson told BNamericas.
The project will include installing six reservoirs: four concrete structures to store 5,000m3, two metal reservoirs to store 2,000m3 each and a smaller metallic tank to hold 140m3.
Also included is construction of three potable water pumping stations and the installation of 27.3km of water main pipeline, 13.7km of distribution pipeline, and 271m of domestic connection lines for the neighborhood of Paço Provisório, according to the official.
