Last week, the President of the Dominican Republic, H.E. Leonel Férnandez, inaugurated the Mata Larga Water Treatment Plant at San Francisco de Macoris in the North East of the country. The scheme was designed and constructed by Biwater.
Biwater commenced this Turnkey contract in 2003. The projects include a one cumec Water Treatment Plant, three pumping stations, two storage reservoirs, 30 kilometres of raw water pipeline and 40 kilometres of treated water distribution pipeline.
The new plant provides potable water to more than 300,000 people to World Health Organisation (WHO) standards using conventional treatment processes together with chemical and chlorine dosing.
