Senagua to launch consultancy tender for Misbaque multi-purpose water project

By -

Ecuador's national water authority Senagua plans to launch a tender to redesign the Misbaque multi-purpose water project in Manabi province's Paján canton.

The designs will replace outdated plans developed by local authorities from Jipijapa and Paján in 1986, according to a company release.

The awardee will prepare final designs for a 20Mm3 reservoir, an irrigation system for 3,390ha and potable water distribution systems. The works have an estimated cost of US$22mn.

Senagua plans to invest US$2.1bn in irrigation and flood control projects by 2016.
