Brazil's Goiás state water utility Saneago is working to renew its sanitation concessions with 35 state municipalities, the company said in a release.
All of the municipalities are expected to renew their contracts, which have either already expired or will do so shortly. The utility will hold public hearings in each municipality to discuss sanitation plans and select priority projects.
Saneago signed new contracts with the municipalities of Pires do Rio, Guarani de Goiás, Israelândia and Morrinhos at a meeting held by company president Nilson Freire just before the Easter vacation.
The utility expects to renew contracts shortly with Anápolis, Trindade, Aparecida de Goiânia, Jataí and Rio Verde.
Saneago aims to provide potable water supply to 100% of municipalities in Goiás by 2014, the release said.
