Water is a rare commodity in the metropolis of Mexico City, which has a population of more than 20 million. The government has been investing in the infrastructure since 2014 in order to secure drinking water supply and wastewater treatment for the future: a 62-kilometer-long tunnel is being built in order to renew the sewage system. Wastewater runs into the world’s largest wastewater treatment plant in Atotonilco, which is designed for a capacity of 10.5 million people. The drinking water supply from deep wells has also been optimized.
Endress+Hauser first became involved with the deep wells, then with the wastewater treatment plant: the specialists from the Mexican sales center provided a customized data transfer solution for plant builder ICH, which specializes in projects in the water & wastewater industry. Measured data including level, pressure and flow can be transferred wirelessly via GPRS modules. This allows remote control to prevent the deep wells from drying out; the population’s access to water is improving.
