Province of Cuba increases investment in the water sector

Camagüey, Cuba, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) Rehabilitation work and projects that include contributions from the Saudi Collaboration Fund are improving water supply and distribution, in the province with the largest hydraulic infrastructure in Cuba.

For the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources, investments in provinces like this one, the largest in the nation with 16,000 square kilometers, are a priority, and for this purpose, work such as the completion of a dozen wells in the 13 municipalities is being carried out.

The Cadena Agramonte Digital portal notes that “in the province the progress of this sector continues, as 2021 investments were made in the water treatment plant”.

The publication also states that “the pumping stations of the Máximo and Pontezuela dams were put into operation, thus guaranteeing a stable supply to the capital city, as part of the project in collaboration with the Saudi Arabian Fund for Development” of about 40 million dollars.

Actions are also aimed at benefiting the main tourist centers in coastal areas such as Playa Santa Lucía, the most visited sun and beach destination by international tourism.

By the end of May, Camagüey flourished again thanks to the entry of 75.5 million cubic meters of water to the main reservoirs, according to data from the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources.

However, in the last two months, rainfall has not increased the volume stored up to that date, which was 163.4 million cubic meters of water.
