Peru has increased potable water coverage to 86.1% from 75.6% in 2011, when President Ollanta Humala took office, housing minister Milton von Hesse said in a statement.
The government has transferred 6.73bn soles (US$2.4bn) to regional governments over the last three years to expand sanitation and water services.
Von Hesse made the comments after opening a 67.7mn-sol water project in center-eastern Ucayali. The project included the construction of wells, pumping stations, distribution networks, housing connections, sewerage systems and one wastewater treatment plant.
The Ucayali project will benefit nearly 19,200 residents.
