The works will impact the neighborhoods of San José, La Perlita, Mi Barrio, La Victoria and Santa Elena and seek to solve the flooding caused by excess rainfall as it will improve water runoff.

Since the commissioning of the work in March 2021, 1,100 meters of the new channel have been executed, in the section that extends between the Las Catonas stream and Márquez de Aguado street. Construction of the Shakespeare Street Bridge was also completed, which required the demolition of the original.

“The sanitation of the Los Perros stream basin is a hydraulic work that will solve the problem of flooding in this area“, said Katopodis and pointed out that “with these works, with more effort and work is the way to give answers to the residents of Moreno”.

The works aim to provide a solution to the flooding that occurs as it is an area with dirt roads, where excess rainfall generates flooding of homes.
