Lima's Water Treatment to Skyrocket

Posted: Jan. 2nd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse
City of Lima

The capital of Peru is going to see some significantly huge changes to its water quality over next two years or so as two treatment plants in Lima are getting ready to push the city's sewage-treated water from 16 percent to an astonishing 100 percent.

Lima will treat 100 percent of the wastewater produced in the capital city by 2015 compared with 16 percent now as two plants enter operation, Peru Housing, Construction and Sanitation Minister Rene Cornejo said.

Sewage treatment will jump to 75 percent next year as the Taboada plant by Spain’s Actividades de Construccion y Servicios SA that started this week increases processing, Cornejo said today in an interview with Lima’s Radio Programas.

The La Chira plant, to be built by Acciona SA (ANA)’s Acciona Agua water unit and Peru’s Grana y Montero SA (GRAMONC1), will be ready by the end of 2015 and will process 25 percent of the city’s wastewater, the minister said.
