With an investment of 880.4 million pesos and after months of delay, the Ensenada desalination plant will finally start operations on Monday, July 9, supplying 250 liters per second to the local population.
The director of the Aguas de Ensenada company, Moisés Pariente, reported that they are currently in the testing period and in the coming weeks some adjustments will be made to the process so the processed water meets the standards required, before sending it to the tank locate at El Gallo, which is the delivery point.
“Throughout these weeks there will be many adjustments of chemical reagents and membrane processes, this is a very complex system and we have to make the necessary adjustments so that the process works properly,” he said.
He explained that the line of conduction that goes from the plant to the El Gallo tank is already finished, and pressure and hydrostatic tests were being carried out, before the final pipeline test.
In relation to water quality, Pariente said that a large part of the bottles of potable water sold in stores, specify that it the water is osmotized, which is basically the process of the desalination plant.
State authorities informed that next Monday, June 11, a visit by President of the Republic Enrique Peña Nieto to Baja California is scheduled to take a tour of the Aguas de Ensenada facilities.
