Mexico seeks investment for Ensenada desalination plant
Mexico is looking for funding to build a desalination plant in Ensenada, Baja California, to supply drinking water to 96,000 people.A recent meeting of the Mexico Chamber of Commerce with its USA counterparts noted the need for greater private participation in financing schemes for infrastructure construction and operation in a number of water and wastewater projects in Mexico.
The investment cost of the Ensenada plant is Peso 352 million (US$ 27.75 million)
The draft water supply plants, sewage treatment, water supply and desalination plants that will start during 2010 in different regions of the country require a major investment of public and private resources, said Jose Ramon Ardavín Ituarte, ADG Water Supply, Drainage & Sanitation, National Water Commission (Conagua).
