CAMAGÜEY.- With the strategy to ensure more water and ensure its quality, continues this year in the province of Camaguey, the construction of the great conductors that cater to this city and the implementation of the third module of the plant with its pumping station.

The previous year were ready the first 17 kilometers of the driver of a thousand millimeters of the Amistad Cubano Búlgara dam and are yet to be done, other 11 kilometers, from the reservoir to its intersection with the maximum reservoir, told the ACN Luis Palacios, director of the program investor.

The timetable of implementation of that work to be completed in the 2017 delayed by the impact of hurricane Irma in the territory, which resulted in the mobilization of the forces of labor and technical equipment for the urgent tasks of recovery.

This year will start the construction of the conductor diameter of 800 millimeters from the Pontezuela dam until the city of Camagüey, another important source of supply to this city, which must be installed 10 of the 21 kilometers of extension.

Palacios stressed that with the construction of both works it is possible to maintain stability in the service and decrease the time of loss for cracks, while working at the completion of the third module of the drinking water plant in Camagüey that treated water from these large conductive.

Currently this treatment center has a capacity to process 600 thousand liters per second and it is expected that after the investment the figure is expected to reach 800 thousand liters per second.

To do this there will be a new pumping station of drinking water, with five modern equipment purchased by the credit agreement between the governments of Cuba and Saudi Arabia, which will give greater reliability and permanence to the supply of water to the population of the city, said Palacios.
