SEAPAL Working to Meet Demand in Emiliano Zapata

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – On May 30, SEAPAL Vallarta began working on the rehabilitation and recalibration of drinking water and drainage lines in the Emiliano Zapata neighborhood. While the work is being done there will be road traffic restrictions on different sections of Basilio Badillo street between Olas Altas and Insurgents, beginning at the Pino Suárez intersection.

This work will modernize old infrastructure so that it will be able to meet increased demand for services through the recalibration of the pipes, which includes modifying the main line for drinking water from its current diameter of 6 inches to 8 inches, and increasing the size of drainage pipes from 10 to 12 inches.

In each section, the old pipes will be excavated and new pipes will be installed. Afterwards, the cobblestones and sidewalks will be replaced before the road is reopened and they move on to the next block.

Personnel from the Department of Water Culture took to the streets over the weekend to inform neighbors and merchants first-hand about the tasks to be carried out, which are expected to continue through August.

The rehabilitation work on the hydro-sanitary network on Basilio Badillo street consists of the installation of 1,041 linear meters of drinking water pipes in various diameters and 49 household intakes, in addition to 220 linear meters of sanitary drainage pipes and 34 household discharges.
