Wastewater Collection Project Loma Blanca, Chihuahua

Status: Under Construction

Background

The purpose of the Project is to provide access to and facilitate the use of first-time wastewater collection and treatment services to the community and thus eliminate exposure to untreated or inadequately treated wastewater discharges, contributing to the reduction of water pollution and the risk of waterborne disease.

Description

The proposed project consists of the construction of a wastewater collection system, including the installation of yard-line connections from the home to the wastewater collection system, as well as the decommissioning of existing on-site wastewater disposal systems for the community of Loma Blanca, in the municipality of Juarez, Chihuahua (the “Project”). The wastewater flows from the new WWCS will be treated at the South-South Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua

Benefits

The Project is expected to generate environmental and human health benefits related to the following Project outcomes:

• Provide wastewater services to 100% of the community by connecting 993 existing homes to the wastewater collection system.

• Decommission all existing on-site wastewater disposal systems to prevent potential contamination.

• Eliminate approximately 9 liters per second (lps) or 0.2 million gallons per day of untreated or inadequately treated wastewater discharges. 1
