Honduras launches work on potable water plant

The cornerstone was laid on Friday for a new potable water treatment plant in Honduras' Comayagua department.

The facility will require 365mn lempiras (US$15.1mn) and is expected to open in 2020, according to local press reports.

The plant, which will have capacity to treat 15,500m3/d of water, will be developed under a project to improve and expand Comayagua's potable water supply system, which also includes the installation of a sediment tank and a 1.4mn-gallon water tank.

Once in operation, the works are expected to benefit about 80% of the department's population.

A non-refundable grant from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will fund the project, which will be managed by the Comayagua municipal government through its local water utility.
