Peru to invest US$470mn in Lima waterworks this year

Peru’s housing ministry (MVCS) has allocated 1.8bn soles (US$470mn) for 10 water and sewer projects that will be carried out this year in capital Lima and the Callao district, mostly through local water utility Sedapal.

In total, Sedapal has eight projects worth 1.73bn soles scheduled for this year, state-owned news outlet El Peruano reported.

Many of these projects are part of Sedapal’s 1.96bn-sol investment plan for the 2021-2026 period.

The largest is the new wastewater treatment plant for the Nieveria and Cerro Camote neighborhoods, costing 598mn soles and which will receive funds from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

Meanwhile, the remaining two projects will cost 121mn soles and will be executed through the MVCS safe water program for Lima and Callao (PASLC), and will entail adding nearly 19,000 new potable water connections and the same amount of sewerage connections.
