Aegea Saneamento, through its concessionaire Águas de Timon, completed a work to interconnect 150 meters in the water distribution network in the municipality of Timon, in Maranhão. The new structure will benefit from treated water for 24,000 residents in the neighborhoods Vila do Bec, Baixa do Coco, Planalto Boa Esperança, Joia, Parque Alvorada, Sete Estrelas, Cajueiro and Vila bandeirantes.
“This new delivery brings a very significant health gain since, by providing access to treated water for the population, we guarantee reinforcement in disease prevention. This impact reflects our commitment to providing more dignified and healthier lives. In this pandemic moment, our role as a provider of basic sanitation services in the country becomes even more necessary and urgent ”, says Radamés Casseb, CEO of Aegea Saneamento.
The expansion is part of the strategy of continuous improvement in service provision. In recent years, Águas de Timon has implemented more than 64 thousand meters of new water networks, ensuring regular supply to 29,700 residents. Since 2016 the supply has been universalized in the city.
With a management model based on operational efficiency and improving service coverage indicators, Aegea has maintained its construction schedule in the context of Covid-19. In Teresina (PI), the project to implement a water network in consolidated occupations has already benefited 32 thousand people in needy areas. The works continue in communities such as Vila Nova Conquista I and II. Two sewage treatment plants were opened in places that did not have these structures, such as ETE Ubatuba, in São Francisco do Sul (SC), and ETE Cabanos, in Barcarena (PA).
Present in 12 states, Aegea develops innovative and efficient solutions that vary according to the geographic and social particularities of the cities in its service portfolio, with populations ranging from three thousand to 2.22 million inhabitants. The company will continue to support the cities where it is present, providing basic and efficient sanitation services and investments.
