Project Details


The project involves increasing the flow of the Chalpi Grande river and three of its tributaries. It also involves channeling the water to a reservoir in Papallacta parish and incorporating it into the Papallacta I pumping system, so as to guarantee water supply for the Quito district until 2040. It will benefit the inhabitants of the district in the areas of Calderón and San Antonio de Pichincha, as well as the parishes of Cumbayá, Tumbaco, Puembo, Pifo, Tababela, Checa, Yaruquí, El Quinche and Guayllabamba. The initiative corresponds to the first stage of the eastern rivers potable water project (PRO).
