Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Peru’s state-owned water utility Sedapal will invest 456 million soles ($165 million) on water supply and sanitation projects in the Lima and Callao area.
The project’s plans include 490 kilometers (305 miles) of pipeline, 17 reservoirs and a sewage plant capable of treating 900 liters (237 gallons) of wastewater a second, Sedapal said on its website.
The project that will benefit more than 72,000 people in Lurigancho Chosica and San Antonio de Huarochiri will be partially financed by the German development bank KfW and the Inter-American Development Bank, the utility said in a Sept. 19 statement. Sedapal is officially known as Servicio de Agua Potable y Alcantarillado de Lima.
