The plant will treat 5,280 million GPM of water to provide clean water to neighborhoods in north Buenos Aires.

This project includes the construction of a 9 miles tunnel for transferring water from the Paraná River to the plant.

The pipelines will be powered by vertical pumps for 46,700 GPM each for river water suction and eight vertical pumps for water distribution. Altogether, these pumps involve a total power of 58,000 HP.

Eight of the twelve pumps have already been installed and will be operating under the required conditions of 186,560 gpm and 330ft of head.
