About the entity

El Salvador authorities have announced plans to build two wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) in the capital, San Salvador, La Prensa Gráfica informs.

The President of the national water company Administración Nacional de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (ANDA), Rubén Alemán, revealed that one of the WWTPs will be constructed with the support of the French government and Vinci Construct. The second facility will be built with the cooperation of the state-owned electricity company Comisión Ejecutiva Hidroeléctrica del Río Lempa (CEL).

Last Wednesday, the French Embassy in El Salvador, ANDA and Vinci Construction signed the agreement for the wastewater treatment plant in Greater San Salvador.

The agreement establishes how the partners will cooperate in the pre-feasibility studies and design of the plant that will treat wastewater from the eastern zone of San Salvador.

The facility to be built by CEL will treat wastewater from four of the five collectors in the metropolitan area of the capital. "It is a plant that will treat around 43 million cubic meters, which will be discharged from collectors 1, 2, 3 and 5", Alemán told La Prensa Gráfica.

The government has not yet disclosed the estimated investments for the projects.
