The water pipeline built in Linhares, Espírito Santo, has been in operation since September 29th. The pipeline, which is about nine kilometers long, can collect 200 liters of water per second, a volume equivalent to 50% of the city's consumption. "The delivery of this work is our commitment to the entire population of Linhares," explains Sérgio Mileipe, project manager.
With the start of the testing phase, Renova Foundation is responsible for the assisted operation of the new collection point, which will take raw water from Lagoa Nova to the headquarters of the Water and Sewage Autonomous Service (SAAE) for treatment and distribution. The pipeline will be officially handed over to the control of the City Hall at the end of this month.
The Renova Foundation’s mission is to implement and manage the repair, restoration and reconstruction programs of the regions affected by the collapse of the Fundão dam, located in the subdistrict of Bento Rodrigues, in Mariana, Minas Gerais.
The Renova Foundation’s role is to restore and reestablish communities and resources affected by the collapse as well as replace or compensate what is not subject to remediation, always in an efficient, reputable, transparent and ethical manner.
