Clean Water for 200 Homes





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Argentina

Location: Pirane

Total Budget: $54,322

Area of Focus: None

The project consists of supplying drinking water to a population group of 200 homes, 800 inhabitants, which are currently supplied with unsafe water by means of pumps (manual and / or electric) with extraction from the upper layers and close to blind wells.

A link will be built to the main water network (Provincial Service of Drinking Water and Sanitation - SPAP) existing in the boundaries of Barrio La Esperanza. From there the distribution pipe of 110/75 mm diameter and with 3860 meters of extension will be built.

The population group receives the names of Barrios EL IDEAL and SAN NICOLAS, belonging to the periphery of the City of Pirane, Pirane Department, Province of Formosa, Argentine Republic.

Pirané, is located in the southeast of the province of Formosa, in the department of the same name, and 110 km from the provincial capital. This city was founded in 1912. Being the third city in population of the province of Formosa, according to the 2010 census, it has 20 335 inhabitants

The province of Formosa has the smallest economy in scale and importance of the country, with a Gross Product that represents around 0.48% of the National GDP. The Gross Product of the province is comprised of 13% for the primary sector, 18% for the secondary sector and 69% for the tertiary sector. Within the latter, the high participation of the public sector representing 45% of it stands out. The main source of resources is the provincial government itself, which is 95% financed by the National Government through Federal Co-Participation and ATN. The State is also the largest employer in the province, with 70,000 state employees, and about 40,000 beneficiaries of social plans, paid for by the Nation.

In short, genuine sources of income are very scarce, reflecting the little development in social infrastructure, the level of needs and poverty in which the inhabitants of Pirane live. Being here that one of the most urgent need is the provision of drinking water. Where the liquid element is a basic and fundamental need that crosses us all without distinguishing condition, for which each person requires at least 20 to 50 liters of clean and safe drinking water a day to drink, cook and simply stay clean.

Also in the world almost 2 million people die each year from diseases linked to unsafe water consumption

The GG will provide the materials, to be acquired through tenders in local suppliers and the labor will be hired in the same locality.
