Pedregal receives piped water after 34 years without service

The improvements in the Bolivarian Aqueduct allowed the recovery of two pumping stations necessary for the west

With an impact on more than 12 thousand inhabitants of the Democracia municipality, in the western axis of the Falcón state, President Nicolás Maduro managed to rehabilitate two drinking water pumping stations to supply the vital liquid after 34 years without service.

Governor Víctor Clark, together with the president of the Médanos Falconianos Hydrological Authority, Alí ​​Cardenal Primera, and the popular power opened the valve and turned on the pump that activates the supply system to 41 communities in the Pedregal parish.

With the joy of seeing the water and feeling it with his hands, the regional leader indicated that with organized and planned work, the water service in the entity was transformed and is increasingly closer to reaching 100 percent coverage in the region.

"At least in the western axis, the five municipalities that comprise it now enjoy the pumping of drinking water through pipes, thanks to the efforts of the Head of State to meet the coverage goal, which is counted among the 70 Works of Chávez and respond to the 1×10 of Good Government,” explained the Governor.

For this reason, it justified the start-up of the Urumaco Pumping Station, located at the entrance to Pedregal on the Falcón-Zulia highway, with the installation of 150 HP equipment, plus the physical rehabilitation of the infrastructure.

In addition to the reopening of the Corralito Pumping Station, located in the La Curva sector, its physical facilities were also recovered with civil works, painting, environmental sanitation, lighting and of course the installation of a 100 HP equipment with their respective backup equipment, boards and Australian tank.

“We celebrate with the residents this achievement that impacts even neighboring areas of the municipality, thanks to the maintenance and sustainability of the Bolivarian Aqueduct, so today it is a reality that they receive water directly through pipes,” he stressed.

More actions for the water system

The highest regional authority indicated that the work agenda allows for an assembly with the Water Technical Boards to evaluate the responses, listen to proposals and assign tasks for social oversight.

In this activity carried out at the Corralito station, the Hidrofalcón work team in the Western axis was provided with three units that will be assigned to the Operations Management.

These units are a van to reinforce measurements throughout the system, a car to cover the work in the El Bolivariano System, and a motorcycle for immediate attention to the Urumaco-Pedregal axis line.

Likewise, the Ministry of Popular Power for Water Care under the figure of Vice Minister Miguel Perozo gave the workers a flow meter to measure the flow and volumetric expenditure throughout the system.

Meanwhile, the State Government assigned a horizontal pump output of 10 liters per second with a 30HP motor for the Bosugo station in the Buchivacoa municipality (Capatárida), also located in the Western axis.

It is worth mentioning that at the assembly there was representation from the 61 communal councils, one UBCh and two communes that make life in the town.

Grateful people

On behalf of the residents, José García, issued an enthusiastic thank you to the President for listening to the people's clamor and providing effective responses.

“We feel very happy about this achievement, for me it is something very emotional because we always talk about hope to the neighbors that it would come and today our dream comes true,” he stated.

He said that these actions are making a reflection for those who lost hope and today realize that the revolution does comply with the premise of supreme happiness.

On the other hand, Mrs. Omaira Navarro added that the arrival of water to the municipality brings with it other benefits since it can be added to the productive activity with the urban gardens.

“They are benefits that derive from good government action, we thank God for guiding their steps and we ask him to continue taking care of the authorities so that they fill more families with well-being with better public services,” he said.
