Peru, Lima: Sedapal to build wastewater treatment plant for irrigation

Peru’s state water and sewerage utility Sedapal, serving Lima and neighboring Callao, will sign an agreement with the Pueblo Libre district to build a wastewater treatment plant [that will] irrigate the district’s green areas with treated water instead of polluted water from the Surco river.

“Pueblo Libre will be the first ecological district in the city and its parks and gardens will be 100% watered by treated water,” [utility president Guillermo León said].
