Rains ease the capital’s water crunch
Santo Domingo.- Santo Domingo Aqueduct Utility (CAASD) director Alejandro Montas affirmed Wednesday that piped water production rose to 340 million gallons per day, and continued rains would normalize the situation in much of Greater Santo Domingo.
The official’s announcement came during the presentation of the project “Cansino Adentro Pilot Unit,” to extend the aqueduct to the eastern suburbs, to be built at a cost of US$45 million with funds from Spain’s International Cooperation Agency for water and sanitation.
“This is a work of great importance for the CAASD because it will solve the problem of water and sanitation of Cansino and other Santo Domingo Este sectors, as no community can develop if its fundamental services aren’t resolved,” Montas said.
