The Peruvian government is improving the quality of life of urban populations by providing access to reliable and sustainable water and wastewater treatment services through its “Programa Nacional de Saneamiento Urbano” (PNSU). In 2017, the Ministerio de Vivienda, Construcción y Saneamiento awarded the SADE-COSAPI consortium a contract to replace the wastewater treatment plant in the city of Piura, in north-western Peru, on the seaside. This large-scale project was designed to provide for the growth of the San Martin region over the next 20 years (2035 target: 38,000 population equivalent).
Focus on the work and the new station
On 9 August 2019, Martin Vizcarra, President of the Republic of Peru, inaugurated this wastewater treatment plant carried out by SADE, SEP and COSAPI. The facility then entered a 3-month start-up phase before becoming fully operational.
