Porto Novo, Sep 13 (Inforpress) – The intermunicipal water and sanitation company and higher education are some of the “structural projects” the City Halls of Santo Antão wants to see implemented already this year, according to the president of the Association of Municipalities from this island.
According to Aníbal Fonseca, the creation of the intermunicipal water company, whose process takes place for several years, has known “progress”, but it is necessary to take “effective steps” towards the implementation of this project, which, in his view, will solve “a large part” of the problems are currently facing the water and sanitation sector in Santo Antão.
The municipalities believe that the company, which will be called Águas de Santo Antão”, will help solve “structural issues” related to water and sanitation, but it can also be a way to ensure “the sustainability” of these two sectors.
Therefore, the Association of Municipalities of Santo Antão considers “imperative” that “concrete steps” be taken with a view to the creation, still in 2021, of the company, which will be in charge of making the investments this island needs in terms of water and sanitation.
