Brazil's São Francisco and Parnaíba valley development company, Codevasf, will launch eight tenders by October 31 for wastewater works under its 2.2bn-real (US$1.01bn) São Francisco and Parnaíba basins restoration initiative.

Projects, which fall under the country's growth acceleration plan, PAC, will take place in five states and make up phase 2 of the restoration initiative which runs from 2011-2014. This phase is estimated at 1.1bn reais, according to the federal government's 8th balance report for PAC 2 works.

In the northeast, three tenders involve work in the state of Bahia, two in Alagoas state, and one each in Pernambuco and Maranhão states. Finally, one more will be launched for work in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais, the report said without detailing tender budgets.

Meanwhile, a total of 17 other wastewater projects to restore the basins are scheduled to be finished by year end. In the northeast, eight projects are being wrapped up in the state of Piauí, four in Maranhão and one in Bahia. Another four are being finished in Minas Gerais.
