Boletín-225.-Oomapas-en-la-San-Rafael.-Puerto-Penasco.Press Release: Puerto Peñasco, Sonora. June 27, 2016. Jorge Pivac Carrillo, Administrative Director of the local Water Office (OOMAPAS), announced a testing period has begun on work to extend the city’s water network in order to provide better service to neighborhoods located in the eastern part of Puerto Peñasco.

“The network extension project consists of pipes, measuring 8″ in diameter, along Calle 67 from the intersection with Calle Río Culiacán to Blvd. José López Portillo, and then toward Calles 66 and 68,” he detailed.

The OOMAPAS Administrative Director emphasized all families residing in the areas of San Rafael and Nuevo Peñasco will benefit from this project, which fulfills one of Mayor Kiko Munro’s commitments.

“Water to supply these neighborhoods,” he furthered, “will be extracted from two wells located in the Kennedy Ejido. These wells will practically be to solely supply this area, and therefore not affect supplies to other parts of the city.

Nearly 600,000 pesos have been invested in the project, which were provided by funds from OOMAPAS itself. This is in addition to 20 million pesos to be invested shortly, thanks to efforts of Mayor Kiko Munro with the Federal Government.

A second stage, concluded Jorge Pivac Carrillo, will include work to extend and connect pipes in order to supply water to families residing along Avenida Río Bravo, between Calles 68 to 61.
