from this thursday SBI it drills several places in Montevideo in search of groundwater to make it drinkable and distribute it to health centers and hospitals. The measure is due to the drought and the water deficit that the country is going through, especially the capital and metropolitan area, which is supplied by the Santa Lucía river basin.
OSE carried out the search in the Military Hospital, on the Athletics Track and in the vicinity of the Municipal Velodrome. In some places it is already extracting water, although there are cases in which the flow did not meet the expectations of the state service. In the case of the well near the Military Hospital: the flow of 2,000 liters per hour that will be extracted will be used exclusively for the operation of this center.
Once extracted, the company will analyze the water to see if it is treatable, and once made drinkable it will be sent to nearby health centers.
The photos are of the work carried out by OSE in the Velodrome area, in Parque Batlle. Look at the photographs gallery.
