Maintenance work carried out at the La Mariposa water treatment plant

An advanced system was implemented that will allow greater water storage

At the La Mariposa water treatment plant, which supplies the vital liquid to the Altos Mirandinos and part of the city of Caracas, a series of remodeling and repairs are being carried out that will favor its operation, according to the Ministry of Water Press.

The work that has been carried out for several months at the plant covers all those areas where the reservoir water is treated and optimized for human consumption.

Each piece of equipment in the different stages of the purification process: pre-chlorination, coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and post-chlorination, has been replaced and repowered with the aim of improving operability.

Likewise, significant changes have been made in the flocculation processes, where the old mechanical system was replaced by a hydraulic one. In the sedimentation process the “mud sweepers” are being changed. In terms of filtration, the old water cleaning system is replaced with an air/water one and new compressors and pumping equipment have been installed.

On the other hand, the construction of a compensation tank is underway within this water treatment plant that will have the capacity to store 15 million 500 thousand liters of water.

All of these works are carried out in compliance with the instructions given by the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, to recover, optimize and operate efficiently the National Water System in service of the people.
