Pipe pressure tests and disinfection works have begun for the project to supply drinking water in Port-au-Prince (Haiti)

21 February, 2020

Incatema Consulting & Engineering has started to carry out pressure tests on the network of pipes that will carry drinking water in the metropolitan region of Port-au-Prince (Haiti), to make sure that they are in good condition and will guarantee proper functioning. At the same time, the company has initiated pipe disinfection works to ensure the supply of drinking water to the inhabitants of Haiti’s capital.

These actions form part of the project funded by the Inter American Development Bank designed to reinforce the commitment of Incatema Consulting & Engineering with sustainable development in the regions where it operates, as already mentioned here. “It is important to remember that Haiti is a country where cholera has affected more than 800,000 inhabitants since 2010 due to the lack of access to a network of water fit for human consumption”, points out the Infrastructures director of Incatema Consulting & Engineering, Fernando Díaz, for whom the potable water supply project for the population of Port-au-Prince is an improvement in access to this element that fulfils Sustainable Development Goal number 6 of the United Nations.
