Aegea Saneamento was highlighted in the fifth edition of the event “Cases of Success in Basic Sanitation”, promoted by Trat Brasil. Through its concessionaire Águas de Primavera, which operates in the city of Primavera do Leste (MT), Aegea is once again on the list that recognizes cities that have demonstrated a proven evolution in the provision of water and sewage collection and treatment services.
Responsible for water and sewage services in Primavera do Leste since 2012, Aegea serves more than 63,000 people in the city and has increased sewage coverage from 30% to 70% in just four years after the start of operations. The company continues to promote improvements in the provision of services such as the expansion of the sewage network in 10 kilometers from the Sewage Treatment Station – ETE Traíras. Water supply is already a reality for 100% of the population.
“This recognition is the result of intense operational and strategic work, linked to major investments in the city. To meet the needs of the municipality, which has a strong emphasis on commercial activities and agriculture, we invested approximately R $ 62.5 million in 2012. Our business model has, in such a short time, allowed for significant changes in coverage rates for the population ”, Says Radamés Casseb, CEO of Aegea Saneamento.
According to Édison Carlos, executive president of Instituto Sabe Brasil “to recognize successful initiatives in basic sanitation and the advances in city indexes, whether large or small in terms of population, and to highlight the role of regulatory agencies that correspond to the commitments assumed by the Institute. With this, we were able to give visibility to the topic and encourage the adoption of these practices by other municipalities that still do not offer adequate coverage of basic sanitation to their inhabitants ”.
Present in 12 states, Aegea develops innovative and efficient solutions in basic sanitation that vary according to the geographical and social particularities of the cities in its service portfolio, with populations ranging from three thousand to 2.22 million inhabitants.
