Brazilian city Sinop in midwestern state Mato Grosso will call a 12.1mn-real (US$7.11mn) tender by December aimed at achieving universal potable water coverage in the municipality, a city spokesperson told BNamericas.
"Project plans have been developed and mayor Juarez Costa has already signed a financing agreement with federal savings bank Caixa Econômica Federal [CEF]," the spokesperson said.
The project involves installing 117km of pipeline, 3,300 new water connections and building 10 reservoirs, according to a local government release.
New water supply networks will be built near the state's federal university UFMT, in the Jardim Palmeiras neighborhood and near Santa Carmem.
Systems will also be expanded in neighborhoods such as Boa Esperança, Jacarandás, Jardim Pérola, Alto da Glória, Gente Feliz, Umuarama II and Jardim América.
Overall, the water supply project will benefit 14,850 people in 17 neighborhoods.
