Rehabilitation of the Collector Poniente Tijuana, Baja California

Background

The purpose of the Project is to eliminate exposure to untreated or inadequately treated wastewater discharges by replacing deteriorated wastewater infrastructure prone to leaks and failures, and thus contribute to the reduction of water pollution and the risk of waterborne diseases.
