Farms to use treatment plant’s organic fertilizer

Santo Domingo.- The organic fertilizer produced by a treatment plant in the capital, which will start operating midyear, will be used for farm production, according to Santo Domingo Aqueduct Utility (CAASD) director Alejandro Montás.

“The Minister of Agriculture should get ready, prepare the trucks to retrieve it and fertilize the land,” Montás said during a presentation at the Dominican College of Engineers, Architects and Surveyors (CODIA).

He stressed that the organic fertilizer is the best in the world and will be used on the lands that will be irrigated by the Monte Grande dam (west).

Montás also listed other benefits of the treatment plant at La Zurza “which will impact nearly 40 neighborhoods in the capital and allow the return of 27 million gallons of decontaminated water to the Ozama and Isabela rivers.”
