Incatema Consulting & Engineering, in a joint venture with the Haitian company SOHECO, S.A., has completed the works of installing a tank located within the municipality of Pétion-Ville Vivy Mitchell (called R236), built at a height of 236 m, with a volume of 2,000 m3. This tank will serve in a first phase to supply by gravity the lower part of the network over a zone currently not supplied of Delmas (Vivy Mitchell) and will provide an emergency flow and additional flow to the network, supplied by the Tunnel Frères and Doco springs, for a flow rate of 8,000 m3/d.

These works, which form part of the project commissioned by the National Directorate of Potable Water and Sanitation of Haiti (DINEPA), are funded by the Inter-American Development Bank. The project contemplates the water supply to the city of Port-au-Prince and improving the conditioning of 8 wells to supply potable water to the city of Port-au-Prince, as already reported here.
