Government to build drinking water systems in border with Haiti
Santo Domingo.– The Dominican government announced that among its purposes is to build water and sanitation systems in communities neighboring the border with Haiti.
According to Government sources, the initiative will require an investment of US$160 million and the potable water and aqueducts agency (INAPA) will call for international competitive bidding in April.
Alberto Holguin, director of that agency, said the participating companies would provide their own financing. "We intend that the entire border, from Montecristi to Pedernales, have drinking water and a safe sewer system so there is no pollution."
