This Tour gives you the opportunity to understand and discover about the Panama bay Sanitation Project. The Treatment Plant of the Sanitation Project of the City and the Bay of Panama is located in the south east area of Panama City, specifically in the area of Juan Diaz
The Sanitation of the City and Bay of Panama is a State project aimed at solving the problem of wastewater in the capital of the country, discharged into streams, rivers and other tributaries, which produces high environmental pollution and generates risks of health for the population.
The project includes an interceptor tunnel, 8.1 kilometers long and 3 meters in internal diameter, which has the function of driving the wastewater from the collectors to the Pumping Station in Nuevo Reparto Panamá, 25 meters deep. It also includes a Line of Drive that takes the waters to the Treatment Plant of Juan Díaz. The Plant receives and treats optimally the waters generated in the capital and in the district of San Miguelito, allowing them to return to the Juan Díaz River, already disinfected. Through the treatment process, methane gas can be recovered, used to generate 18% of the electrical energy required by the plant in its operation.
