Project Characteristics

Gamboa-José Drinking Water Treatment Plant

"Planed works include headworks located on the Chagrés River, a short distance from its mouth on lake Gatún, which is a natural route for vessels crossing the Panama Channel. These headworks will see the construction of a pumping station that will lift the waters up to the drinking water treatment plant via an 11-kilometer 1,800mm (72”) conveyance pipeline made out of ductile iron. The plant will have a guaranteed production capacity of 60 MGD (227,100 m3/day), with the possibility of being increased to 302,800 m3/day (80 MGD), and will connect with the existing water network in the city of Panama via a 19 km pipeline with the same specifications as the conveyance pipeline. After completing the works, the contract stipulates a 3-year period of operation and maintenance of the built infrastructure. This new project will strengthen the systems of the Panama City water network, guaranteeing the supply of drinking water 24 hours a day to over 235,000 people."
