Project Details

Description

The purpose of the project is to eliminate the need for water service cuts in Chile's metropolitan region, which is where the capital, Santiago is located. Such service suspensions have been common in recent years when it rains. The rain causes turbidity in the Maipo river, which provides 85% of water utility Aguas Andinas' water supply, making it impossible for the company to run its water treatment plants. The project calls for the construction of an emergency water storage facility in the municipality, which will supply water for 32 hours when the water treatment plants cannot operate due to climatic conditions.
